Lima Bean Recipe {Baby Limas and Pancetta}

lima bean recipe In our family, lima beans are good any ‘ole way, but I love finding new ways to prepare a food I’ve cooked a million times!

This lima bean recipe is very easy and can be used as a side dish or a non-traditional main dish, as it contains pancetta.

Pancetta, an Italian bacon, is somewhere between ham and what I think of as “regular” bacon.

Here is the package that I found:

7.  Add the pancetta back to the skillet and add the pepper.  If the limas are drying out, you can add a little more broth.  Let the limas simmer for about 15 minutes.

This is what you’ll end up with!
