This recipe is adapted from one in Jeff Smith's book The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines published in 1989. I modified it a bit to make a richer sauce with more tomato flavor. The original contained much more chicken stock and did not include tomato sauce. I also included some additional spices. I used canned San Marzano tomatoes. They aren't cheap. Though any canned plum tomatoes will work; San Marzano do have great flavor. This goes well with anything Italian. The sauce freezes very well. After simmering the sauce will be slightly chunky. I elected to puree it in a blender for a smoother consistency.
