Farfalle with Lima Beans

I felt lost after posting recipes for all the blog events J What next? was the question.

To utilise a can of Lima beans, (I bought when I was searching for Fava Beans) last night I fixed us a quick pasta dinner- Farfalle with Lima Beans. BTW, Lima Beans are also called Pavta in Marathi (which I very well know). This I learned after some research on them; though what we get locally looks a bit different than the canned ones.

The buttery nutty flavour of the Lima beans complimented the soft beautiful Farfalle bows in a tangy tomato-mushroom sauce. This bean-bow combination will be often repeated in my house!  

I stumbled upon this blog just as I was to post the Farfalle with Lima beans recipe.

Regulars to my blog will already know I have become a slave to food blog events; how could I not send this recipe for the Presto Pasta Nights.Ruth this simple, quick Farfalle with Lima Beans is for your Pasta Night.
