Luxurious Tomato sauce


This recipe comes from Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking, a firm favourite of bloggers and pretty much the most famous tomato sauce recipe on the web. We thought we’d try it out with our Peeled Tomatoes & share it with you!

It’s so simple, just knock together a few store-cupboard friends. Simmer 2 cans of Mr Organic tomatoes with a white onion and a healthy slither of butter. Add a pinch of salt and pull out the onion at the end, and you're left with a velvety tomato sauce with a rich roundness from the butter. Instead of using sugar to reduce the tomatoes’ tanginess, let the tomato shine!

Butter is not as much of a foe as previously thought, it’s certainly better than transfats & in moderation, can be enjoyed guilt-free!

Serve it over pasta with plenty of parmesan shavings, a spritz of black pepper and a few tears of basil.

Top tip for all pasta cooking –

 Scoop out some of the cooking water just before draining out the pasta. A few tablespoons of this starchy liquid is a low-calorie way of adding creaminess to any sauce
