Gigantes (Greek Lima Beans)

Gigantes (Greek Lima Beans)
In Greek, it's called 'Gigantes' which translates as 'Giants.' Try to find the largest dried lima beans possible. You might add small canned sausages, but this is a matter of personal taste. Serve with feta cheese and a crusty bread. You can also substitute 2 teaspoons parsley for the dill if you prefer.
