This is a hearty and garlicky recipe which is heavenly for a chilly night. The ingredients are very easily adjusted, so if you really like tarragon add more.
I grew up hating lima beans. But I actually liked this dish. I didn't have tarragon, so I substituted a combination of fennel and anise. Also, I used lima beans cooked from dry. I liked what sauteing did to the flavor and texture of the limas. - 11 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had a can of lima beans that was an "inheritance" from my old roommate. This looked like the most appetizing way to cook them, and after actually trying the recipe, I think I was right. I still didn't like it very much, but I'll give you credit for finding a way to make lima beans palatable. - 15 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was one of the BEST pasta dishes that I have had in a long time. It is VERY easy to make and is done in the time it takes to boil pasta. If I could have given it 10 stars I would have. Even my 2 and 4 year old sons ate it and they do not like any veggies. Yummy!!!! - 18 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
