Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce
Recently I mentioned that tomato sauce for pasta is something I have to be in the mood for and it was suggested to me that I try this sauce.
Three ingredients to make a great pasta sauce?
I had to try it.
And I couldn’t wait for the meal to taste it. Heck, I couldn’t even wait until it was fully cooked!
And it totally shocked me. It tasted great.
Three ingredients and it was truly a great sauce.
(And I kept the onion and ate it with some salt. Yum!)
Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce: 3 ingredients
- 1 whole onion
- One 28-ounce can of whole, peeled tomatoes
- 5 tablespoons of salted butter
Place the butter, onion and tomatoes (roughly chop the tomatoes first) into a pot and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes.
Until droplets of fat float freely from the tomato.
Remove the onion and discard. (It can be enjoyed with a little salt and pepper)
Serve over pasta cooked in salted water.
