I'm not a big green bean fan but we had some fresh string beans and didn't want to sautee them so I tried this. It was delicious enough for me to get seconds. I went easy on the cloves though....

We all enjoyed this. I used closer to 2 pounds of beans to use up what I had on hand. I was out of Whole Cloves so just threw a pinch of ground in and was perfect. Great side for Spanish chicken...

This recipes is easy and my husband loved it. I used fire roasted tomatoes didn"t have stewed.
