Lima Beans, Pasta & Onions

Lima Beans Pasta and Onions blank630x20

FAST :: INEXPENSIVE :: HEALTHY  This is a very simple healthy meal to make. It’s only seasoned with salt and has a very mellow flavor.  You can of course add any spices you wish and even sauce if desired. I love plain pasta so I enjoy the flavor just as it is with a little sea salt.  NOTES: I used some  gluten free but any type and shape will do including noodles.  I also use water to saute in rather than oils.
