I used fresh green beans. They were not the Italian cut but delicious. I was fortunate enough to have fresh tarragon and the flavor was wonderful. So easy and so full of flavor.

Wonderful tasty beans - I added a tsp of garlic granuales and 1/2 tsp chili flakes. This is a keeper thanks Dancer

I liked this even better when the whole thing had chilled in the frig. Beans of any kind and fresh tarragon are a winning combination in my cookbook.
