Reviews for Three Bean Casserole
"Have not yet had chance to make. Sounds terrific for winter time."
"I make almost the same recipe, only with butter beans and undrained pork and beans instead of the lima and garbanzo beans. We also use 3/4 cup sugar...and my results are always on the sweet side. I am glad to see that one of my favorite recipes is actually pretty healthy!"
"This dish has a lot of tang and zip. A little bit too much for our liking. More on the sour side of sweet and sour."
