tomato sauce with onion and butter

01 May

This is the perfect tomato sauce for the homemade gnocchi or any kind of pasta.  Super simple to make.

I’d like to wish my step-mom Kate and my good friend Lori a very happy birthday!

Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

  • 28 ounce can plum tomatoes, cut up, with their juices
  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut in half
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Put the tomatoes in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt.  Cook uncovered at a very slow, steady simmer for 45 minutes or until the fat floats free from the tomato.  Stir occasionally, mashing any large piece of tomato with the back of the wooden spoon.  Taste and correct for salt.  Discard onion before serving.

Recipe from Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.
