INGREDIENTS

  • 3 lbs fresh tomatoes or canned peeled whole tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, halved
  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves


DIRECTIONS

1 Peel the tomatoes if they’re fresh. Chop them coarsely and put them in a large saucepan with the onion, butter, salt and basil. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer gently for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2 Taste and adjust the seasoning, and remove the onion if you like (or leave it in and just hack it up a little with a sharp knife). Use immediately (sauce can be refrigerated for up to 5 days or frozen for up to six months).

Makes enough sauce for 1 pound of pasta, plus extra.
