1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream

  • Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 1 minute. Add the Tomato Paste and Old Bay seasoning and cook 2-3 minutes.
  • Add 1/3 cup of the sherry and simmer until liquid is reduced by about half. Add the Crushed Tomatoes, chicken broth, sugar, salt and pepper.
