Marcella Hazan 3 ingredient tomato sauce
I’ve been reading about this sauce for years, and friends had sent it round a few times.
In a project for a friend, I put together some picture only, simple recipes on a separate blog. This recipe seemed made for such a project, and so I gathered up the three required items.
I did also add some salt to taste.
Although the original recipe calls for a 28 oz can of San Marzano tomatoes, those aren’t easily found here, and ultimately I had to settle for this can of San Marzano style tomatoes, with basil.
The can went into a Dutch oven
Five ounces of butter seems like such an odd thing to add, but in it went.
The last ingredient is a large yellow onion, peeled and cut in half, then added to the pot.
I added a bit of salt as well.
After stirring everything together, and melting the butter, I reduced the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for a good 45 minutes.
