        6  slices        bacon, -- finely chopped
      1/4  cup           olive oil
        2                onions, -- thinly sliced
        2                garlic cloves, -- minced
        4                vine-ripened tomatoes, -- seeded and chopped
      1/2  cup           canned tomato puree
        3  cups          thawed frozen lima beans
                         Small red chili
                         Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
 
 In a skillet, heat the bacon over moderate heat. When partially rendered,
 add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the onions, cover and cook for
 15 minutes or until really tender. Add the garlic, tomato, tomato puree,
 and hot chili pepper and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the lima
 beans, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until they have had a chance to
 absorb the flavors. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with
 grilled Italian sausages or breakfast sausages.
