Tomato Butter Sauce

Tomato Butter Sauce

Our absolute go-to recipe!  Inspired by the legendary Marcella Hazan, this recipe is the base for almost every pasta dish, pizza sauce or soup you need.   With so few ingredients, good quality tomatoes are an absolute must.   All you need is to toss with sauce with hot cooked pasta, and you'll feel like you've been whisked away to a small Italian bistro!  

1 large can good quality Italian plum tomatoes (we like Mutti Brand
1 cooking onion, peeled & cut just in half
5 tbsp. unsalted butter
Diamond Crystal kosher salt, to taste

1.  Using a hand blender, blitz tomatoes until smooth (optional)
2.  Place tomatoes, onion and butter in a medium sized pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.   
3.  Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes. 
4.  Remove onion and season to taste.
