Lima Bean Pasta

Rated as 4.13 out of 5 Stars
22

"This is a heavenly recipe for a chilly night. It is quite garlicky, so if you don't like garlic, you might want to find another option for dinner! The ingredients are very easily adjusted, so if you really like tarragon, add more. If you hate it, add less, etc. The ratios are very flexible, so don't be afraid to experiment. The parmesan adds a lot of flavour."

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 sau...

I made this twice, exactly as written, because I had some tarragon to use up. It's a decent recipe, but nothing spectacular. Cheese and garlic are always good, though, and I was surprised that j...

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. E...

Admittedly, I didn't actually make the pasta; however, I found this recipe to dress up my lima beans. I added Lawrey's garlic salt and parmesan cheese (based on this recipe), and they were the ...

A very quick and easy recipe. Good if you like pasta, want a break from the typical pasta recipes (which I did) but don't want to try something really complicated. This took very little time to...

Different and pretty good. Four stars with five-star potential with some tweaking. I followed the recipe except I used frozen lima beans (after cooking them about halfway). With a little more...

Lovely. I used fresh tarragon as I was looking for recipes that would allow me to use it, plus added half a can of diced tomato and a light sprinkle of crushed red pepper. Also I used farfell...
