I really liked this, but I wanted to make it more substantial so I added some broccoli. I cooked the bacon, then removed it from the pan. Then I cooked the broccoli in the bacon fat, salt, pepper, and garlic. Then I threw in the beans and greens, turned off the heat stirred for about 2mins, added the lemon juice, and stirred again. I served the bacon on top to keep it crispy. Definitely do not skip the lemon, it adds a nice, bright flavor!

This recipe is wonderful! It makes for a quick work day lunch as well. Didn't change a thing.

Way too much lemon for my liking. It's a great recipe otherwise, and I will make it again. Thank you.

This was awesome! I don't like Lima beans however these were delicious, with hints of smokey, tangy and salty. I am on a slow carb diet and these are a perfect addition to it. Yum! One note of caution, only cook the beans the 3 minutes before adding the arugula other wise they will start to mash while waiting for the arugula to wilt. The bacon I bought had 12 slices which I also cut up and put into 2 additional plastic bags for more meals.

So fast and delicious! I actually forgot to sprinkle the lemon juice on at the end, and it was still amazing. I'll remember next time. I added a shake of Parmesan cheese. Family loved it!

I didn't change a thing in the recipe, however I did make it way to soon and had to reheat and because of that it wasn't as pretty, but it was still fantastic! I will make these again and again!
