February 18, 2021 My friends Jennifer and Heather reminded me of Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter recipe. It’s one of the simplest, sweetest most delicious tomato sauces. It takes only 5 minutes to prep and then simmers on the stovetop. She recommends using it on gnocchi, spaghetti, penne or rigatoni. Prep: 5 mins Cook: 55 mins Yields: 6 Servings Ingredients 2 pounds fresh, ripe tomatoes, blanched, peeled, and roughly chopped, OR 2 cups canned imported Italian plum tomatoes, cut up, with their juice
5 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, peeled and cut in half
1 to 1½ pounds pasta
Freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese for the table Directions 1Put either the prepared fresh tomatoes or the canned in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt, and cook uncovered at a very slow, but steady simmer for 45 minutes, or until the fat floats free from the tomato. Stir from time to time, mashing any large piece of tomato in the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Taste and correct for salt. Discard the onion before tossing the sauce with pasta. Serve with grated Parmesan.
1May be frozen when done. Discard the onion before freezing.
2Recommended pasta: 3This is an unsurpassed sauce for Potato Gnocchi, but it is also delicious with spaghetti, penne, or rigatoni.Recipe by Marcella Hazan, Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. close full screen 00:00 0 Reviews Cancel replyYour review ...All fields are required to submit a review.Your name ...
