This rich, simple comfort dish is so easy that the only way to mess it up is to change or complicate it. San Marzano canned tomatoes are readily available in Bloomington, so make no substitutions unless it’s to swap in fresh, garden tomatoes. Based on Italian foodie and cookbook author Marcella Hazan’s classic sauce recipe, this might inspire you to ditch pasta sauce from a jar forever. We’re never going back!
Personalize this dish with your favorite salsa and adjust the amount of chili powder to your liking. Any shredded chicken will work here, from a poached or grilled chicken breast to some leftover rotisserie.
