Classic Lima Bean Casserole

An abundance of homegrown lima beans and leftover sausage inspired me to create this dish more than 20 years ago. It's proven to be a timeless classic.

    This was delicious. Next time I will add diced ham instead if sausage.

    This can be a main dish or a side dish. My family loves it either way. I chop an onion and cook it with the sausage. The first time I tried this recipe I thought there was something missing and it proved to be the onion.
