fettuccine with lima beans, peas, and leeks


Okay, I hadn’t tried leeks until I saw this recipe in Real Simple, but it looked good enough and easy enough to try.  I didn’t even know as I bought them that leeks are like really big brothers to the green onion. To my surprise, we all like it a lot!  Thanks, Real Simple, you scored again.  (You’ll notice probably half of my recipes come from that magazine since I’ve subscribed since they started 10 years ago.)  Oh, and I use dried tarragon and it’s seemed to work fine… because how on earth would I use up an entire bunch of tarragon?
