20 MINUTE BUTTER AND ONION TOMATO SAUCE

ALL RECIPES, PRIMI PIATTI, SUGHI, RAGU & PESTO (SAUCES), VEGETARIAN DISHES

If you have ever made Marcella Hazan’s glorious butter and onion tomato sauce, then you know that it can take a bit of time to make (even though it is considered to be the simplest of her sauce recipes). It tastes phenomenal, but I would rather save it for a Sunday dinner. Here is a ‘weeknight version‘ that’s ready in half the time of the original recipe. The sauce is cooked at a higher temperature but the butter and onion flavours still shine through.
