The special thing about this tomato sauce is the cinnamon and honey.  These 'sweet' flavors Greek Style Tomato Saucecombined with the olives, garlic and mint give this Greek style tomato sauce a deliciously different flavor.   It's wonderful on pasta or baked on chicken as in the photo.  This is a good sauce to play with.

We served it as a lunch special with spaghetti topped with grilled chicken and this sauce.
