Re: Post your Bean recipes!

LARGE LIMA BEANS (GREEK BEANS) AKA PIZZA BEANS

1 jar Trader Joe’s Bruschetta (the one that has 1.5g fat/serving,
contains 11 servings)

1 lb. Dried large lima beans, sorted, washed and cooked according to
directions, but slightly undercooked (can use canned, rinsed and
drained).

12 oz. water

Gently stir together the bruschetta and beans. Rinse bruschetta sauce jar out with 12 oz. water and stir water into beans. Gently place beans in ovenproof casserole. To make beans creamier, sprinkle 2 tbs. olive oil on top. Bake at 350 until beans are hot and bubbly, about 1 1/2-2 hours. The longer these cook, the better they taste, but you can eat them without the added water and baking time. Serve with shredded mozz. or cheddar cheese.
Can be served hot, warm or cold.

**I have slightly under-cooked the beans in the CP, drained the beans and then added the jar of bruscehtta, eliminate the water and just cook on low for a bit until beans are finished cooking.
