A nice, simple recipe! I have always found lima beans to be kind of bland, and this recipe really livens them up! I added garlic (I already had it chopped and figured might as well add it in), but otherwise, kept the recipe the same. I found that the tomato masked the bacon, but otherwise, a great recipe!
