Weekday Tomato Sauce

Weekday Tomato Sauce


Author note: This sauce is finished in 30 minutes. Its origins are from Marcella Hazan’s tomato and butter sauce. It can be used in a variety of ways: pasta, sauteed vegetables, pizza, dipping sauce, etc. Also, this recipe is easily doubled or tripled if you are feeding a large crowd or plan to freeze a batch or two.

1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes

2 tablespoons diced yellow onion

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon dried oregano

  1. Place the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Puree with an immersion blender or place in a food processor. If a chunky sauce is preferred, omit this step. Serve warm.
