Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli spears
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen Lima beans
  • 6 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) tomatoes, drain and reserve liquid
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Cook broccoli, following package directions. Remove with slotted spoon and arrange in a buttered shallow 2-quart baking dish. Add lima beans to the broccoli cooking liquid and cook until tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Spoon lima beans over the broccoli. Sprinkle Cheddar over vegetables.

In a saucepan, saute onion in 2 tablespoons of the butter. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in liquid from the tomatoes. Simmer, stirring, until smooth and thickened, adding some of the reserved vegetable cooking liquid if too thick. Dice the tomatoes and add to the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in basil. Pour sauce over the cheese layer.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter; add bread crumbs and toss. Stir in Parmesan cheese; sprinkle bread crumb mixture over the sauce layer. Bake in preheated 400° oven for 20 minutes, or until heated through and topping is browned. Broil for the last few minutes, if desired.
Serves 4 to 6.
