"We loved this simple, easy dinner, but I followed the advice of other reviews and only used 1 can of tomatoes and instead of lima beans, I subbed 1 can Northern and 1 can black beans, plus added an extra package of smoked sausage to feed all. Great dinner!"

"This is one of my go to recipes! Keep some sausage in the freezer, use canned black beans and you have a very easy, in a hurry, delicious meal. My family loves this. I use only 1 can of tomatoes. Feel free to substitute in whatever canned beans (black, kidney etc....) you have."

"this is one of my go to recipes for crock pot cooking or when I need something delicious and easy. Everyone LOVES it. Try using canned kidney beans instead of the limas and halfing the tomatoes. Otherwise, an awesome recipe. I have been making it for years."

"My family and I love this recipe! I have made it many times and it never have left overs. Vary the taste with the type of sausage- kielbasa, chicken sausages (I am presently using a chicken apple sausage which works great). This recipe is simple and easy. I also use canned black beans or red kidney beans (my family prefers them) to the limas. Enjoy."
