      This one is a big hit in our home!!!!! Hope you enjoy as much as we do:tongue:

      1 pound lima beans
      1 ham hock bone
      1/4 cup olive oil
      2 small cloves garlic (chopped fine)
      1/2 can tomato paste
      1 cup elbow macaroni
      Salt and pepper to taste

      Soak beans overnight. Place beans and ham hock bone in 3 1/2 quarts of cold water. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.

      In a frying pan saute garlic in oil. Stir and add tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

      Remove garlic and discard. Add sauce to beans with a dash of salt and pepper. Add more water if soup is to thick.

      Remove ham hock and simmer for 2 hours until beans are cooked. Add macaroni and cook 10-12 minutes.

      I think I’m not getting something. How do you discard the garlic if it has been chopped fine? Am I reading something wrong?

      Thanks! 🙂
