I personally did not care for this recipe. First, I would have diced the tomatoes rather than blending them into a puree. Also, the cloves were too overpowering in this dish. Overall, there were too many flavors giving the dish no direction. Preperation was easy enough, however, the flavor left me wanting. In conclusion, this will be a no repeat recipe for me.
