Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter. So easy. So amazing.

I came across this whilst trawling through my beloved google reader. I am, of course, subscribed to steamykitchen (Jaden, should you ever read this: You are amazing). I looked at it.. I read it. I reread it. Surely, surely a perfect tomato sauce couldn’t be this easy.. Interest roused, I had to try it! And I did. And then I spent the next hours gobbling tomato sauce with anything that it could be put on. And texting/emailing/tweeting Mary about how amazing it was. And it is. And it is now a staple. Love it.

It takes a whopping 3 ingredients.

An onion
Butter x a big chunk. Specifically 5 tablespoons. I eyeball it.
2 tins of tomatoes
(I also put in a semi crushed clove of garlic. Cos.)

Here goes.

  1. Cut your onion in half. Put it, the butter and the tomatoes in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer.
  3. Leave for 45 mins to 1 hour.Until it’s thickened and beautiful.
  4. Scoop out your onion and garlic. Pure tomato goodness left.
  5. You don’t need to add sugar, the sweetness of the onion comes right out. Its amazing.
  6. Thats it. Seriously. AMAZING.

Butter is class.

Sin e.

Serve with garlic bread for food joy.
