My Secret Tomato Sauce

There are some foods we all just assume are icky. Take anchovies, for example. Have you ever met a kid who thought they'd like anchovies? Anchovies add a depth of flavor to sauces that is indescribable. So the next time you make pizza or just want to jazz up some pasta, take kids outside their comfort zone and try this sauce.
