Marcella Hazan’s Famously Quick & Easy Tomato 🍅 Sauce

Bon appetite

★★★★★

Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Sauce

INGREDIENTS

1, 28-ounce canned tomatoes, puréed or hand crushed

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 medium yellow onion, peeled, halved

Kosher salt

1 pound dried pasta of your choice, but for extra saucy goodness 8oz. fills the bill

Parmesan cheese, for serving

DIRECTIONS

Simply toss the tomatoes, butter and onion in a saucepan over medium low heat. Season with salt and bring to a steady simmer. Allow the sauce to simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally, making sure to scrape the sides of the pot. Adjust the seasoning and remove the onion (although I’m told it’s pretty delicious in its own right.)

Boil the pasta according to the package instructions, drain and toss the pasta into the hot sauce. Keep tossing until every strand is well coated. Serve among two warm bowls and scatter with Parmesan cheese.
