Halved this recipe for the two of us; talk about tasty! But then we liked lima beans in the first place, and how can you go wrong with lemon juice/zest, olive oil, and Parmesan?

Wonderful, fast recipe. I didn't even think I liked Lima beans. My husband even tried them thinking he was going to hate them...I am making them for the 4th time tonight. My whole family loves them! Thank you!

I love lima beans. This is such an easy recipe and so tasty. I cut the recipe back to half and cut back on the parmesan cheese - very delish! Thanks for posting
