Chef John's Tomato Sauce
Reviews:
December 06, 2014

This is a great basic red sauce that can be used in anything needing a red sauce. The first time you make it make the recipe exactly as written and include ALL ingredients including the anchovy paste which adds no anchovie flavor but a nice subtle richness to this sauce. Follow the instructions exactly. I'm a very experimental cook but sometimes I like to make recipes as written the first time to see what the chef intended. This was a very pleasant surprise and a staple in my kitchen. One thing, I did not buy the five dollar a can San Marzano tomatoes. I buy good quality name brand crushed tomatoes and they're more than fine for this sauce.
