This is a really good use for peas, which I normally find boring. I used fava beans instead of limas (as this was what I had on hand), dried rosemary and cut back on the butter and pine nuts to lighten it up; but it was still really good. I ate this with a stuffed chicken breast. This recipe will go into the regular rotation to be used again.

I didn't do a good job of following this recipe but it was still worthy of 5 stars. My husband loved it! I left out the pine nuts, green onions, and rosemary.

Excellent recipe! Highly recommend it for all occasions. My husband loves lima beans. Toasted pine nuts in oven, then mixed with vegetables. Used slightly less butter than recipe called for and still very delicious. It is one of my new favorite recipes.

I didn't realize how great fresh rosemary was until I tried this dish. The texture of the nuts (which I lightly toasted) combined with the greens is perfection. It's a perfect side dish. Relatively sweet. Relatively crunch. Total taste!
