This recipe was made on 2/27/11 for the "Sides "event in the Food Photo Forum.A 12 ounce bag of frozen limas was all that was on hand so that's what was used. So with that being said here are the changes, instead of using celery salt celery powder was used.Also, I just used regular S & P to taste,2 Tablespoons of margarine, and just a small amount of evaporated milk. Since we both like cheese the full amount was used ( in fact, a bit more was added after plating ;))We've always liked lima beans, but after tasting this recipe we like them alot more than we did before.Thank you for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "

Didn't know that love was green and yellow. Lima beans are one of my favorites and with all the recipes I have tried have never had lima's and cheese together. This was so creamy and cheese and just plain yummy. Made using fat free cheese and 1% milk (added 1/2 tsp cornstarch as half-and-half would thick slightly and 1% will not). Will be making these often. Thanks so much for the Very yummy recipe.
