Love those Baby Lima Beans so much had to post another yummy soup recipe for you all. Isn't it beautiful too? Serve it with some homemade cornbread or your favorite crackers and you'll have a meal ready to go for the entire family.

Original recipe was from the lima bean bag, so I had to try it when I saw that it called for cottage cheese. I adjusted this recipe to what I had on hand.

See what you think about it.
