The Simplest Tomato Sauce


1 (28 oz.) can whole peeled tomatoes, with juices

1 onion, peeled and halved

5 tbsp. unsalted butter

Salt, to taste


Combine the tomatoes, onion, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to keep the sauce at a low, steady simmer for 45 minutes.  Stir occasionally, crushing the tomatoes against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon.  Remove from the heat, discard the onion, and add salt to taste.  (I didn't add any salt.)  Serve warm with pasta.
