Saw this recipe by Marcella Hazan for best way to cook tomato sauce, very simple:


2 x 400g tinned whole, peeled tomatoes

1 x onion, peeled and halved

6 tablespoons of butter


put all ingredients in a pot and set to simmer uncovered for 45 mins over a medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, remove the onion halves and serve over pasta,


So I tried it but using tinned chopped tomatoes, much as I wanted to, I couldn’t bring myself to chuck in 6 tablespoons of butter, it was 3, added salt and fresh basil leaves and simmered for 45 mins.....it was delish!!!!


Served with prawn linguine (added chorizo for meat eating hubby).


‘Cooking it again tomorrow on request so that’s a winner 😀

I have a similar one where i roast the tomatoes, onions, garlic and capsicums - then just blend them together add a little butter, salt and vinegar. That's yum too.


Gives it more a smokey taste.

How long do you roast them for? Do you peel the garlic and leave it whole or slice it up?  I really like the smokey taste so want to try this one too - thank you for sharing 😀

No problem - just until they looked roasted ... and yes I peel garlic ... you can roast it in the bulb and squeeze it out like toothpaste later both would work.

(roasted garlic in the bulb is a nice spread on crackers/toast as well).
