Recipe – Pasta Sauce

Pasta is a staple, for us, Sam’s club Classico sauce is bought by the case and it is perfect as a base for either ground Italian sausage or meatballs. But as I start to explore healthier options a simple meatless tomato-based sauce would be nice to have in my back pocket.

This is from Marcella Hazan and is simply:

First, the ingredients. You’ll need a 28-ounce can of whole, peeled tomatoes; one peeled, halved onion; and 5 tablespoons of butter. (Yes, 5 whole tablespoons of butter.) You’ll also want a pinch or two of salt.

Put everything together in a single pot and set it to simmer over medium heat on the stove for 45 minutes, uncovered. Give it the occasional stir.

And that’s it. After the 45 minutes is up, toss out the onion halves, and pour the sauce over your favorite pasta. Easy.
