Some recipes for Greek baked giant beans (Gigantes Plaki) require cooking the tomato sauce separately and then combine everything in a pan. I find it a lot easier (and with less cleanup) to just add all of the ingredients to the pan and let them bake in the oven for about an hour. This way, the sauce has enough time to caramelize and get a hint of smokiness from the charred tops of the beans.
