Lima Bean Soup / Lima Beans and Pasta

Admittedly I was skeptical...someone gave me a bag of dried lima beans - not my favorite vegetable but I never had them dried and that's usually a huge difference in taste.

Ok - so is this a soup or is it lima beans and pasta? It started out as a soup but I wanted something more substantial and added dried brown rice pasta broken up so it soaked up all the yummy juices.
