Classic Recipe: Marcella Hazan's Famous Tomato Sauce
The idea behind this tomato sauce is simple: Simmer a can of tomatoes
with an onion and 5 tablespoons of butter. Add a pinch of salt and pull
out the onion at the end, and you're left with a bright, velvety tomato
sauce with a rich roundness from the butter. This tomato sauce is also
entirely hands-off. You don't even mince the onion.
Marcella Hazan's Amazing 4-Ingredient Tomato Sauce
Serves 2 to 4.
from Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.
28-ounce can peeled plum tomatoes, no salt or herbs added
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small white onion, peeled and cut in half
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
Put a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes, butter,
onion halves, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer then lower the
heat. Crush the tomatoes lightly with the back of a spoon as they cook,
and stir occasionally. Simmer very gently for 45 minutes, or until
droplets of fat appear on the surface of the tomatoes. Remove and
discard the onion.
Serve over hot pasta with Parmesan and black pepper. Use the rest of
the Parmigiano Reggiano from last week.
