I always wondered why my mother added potato's to her pole bean dish.
She did use Spanish and Italian cooking methods.

You have about 1-3/4# of potatoes and almost a pound of green beans. I don't think 4 tsp of oil with garlic and paprika is going to go very far as a sauce. I'm not even sure 4 Tbsp would do the job. Have you made this dish yourself?

Hey CraigC,
thanks for your remark - you're right! I meant 4 tablespoons of oil, of course. You can also use more oil to get more sauce on your potatoes, but I thought I'd recommend the "light" version ;)
I make this dish all the time and I love it, because it is so cheap, simple and yet delicious! :)
