I make a tomato or marinara sauce all the time, but I've never really had a go to recipe that I absolutely loved. Last weekend I googled "simple tomato sauce" and up popped something from Smitten Kitchen. Maybe I'm the only one that doesn't already know about this fabulous recipe, but if you haven't tried it, I urge you to try it right away! It's that good.
|When I read Deb's post from Smitten Kitchen about this sauce it led me to all the others who are total foodies and how much they love it too. It seems almost too good to be true because it's so easy. These are the ingredients: One can of San Marzano tomatoes, 5 ounces of butter and one onion, peeled and cut in half. That's it. You put this all into a heavy pot, I used a 2 3/4 quart Le Creuset. Let it come to a boil and then simmer for about 45 minutes. I let it cool slightly and then blended it in two batches in a blender. My kids really like it smooth.|
|This is what it looks like after the onion is removed, blended and then put back into the pot until we were ready to eat.|
|and about 9 minutes later, we were ready for dinner.|
|We did not have a lot leftover, but just enough for my daughter for a snack after after golf. She reheated in the microwave and dipped fresh bread like it was soup. YUM!|
