My new favorite (easiest!) spaghetti sauce

This tomato-butter sauce is incredibly delicious and quite possibly the EASIEST dish I've ever made. The original recipe is from Marcella Hazan and an amazing cook and foodie passed it on to me.

This would be great to use in a pasta dish - like lasagna - or just in spaghetti, like we did. I also added ground beef and grated parmesan to our spaghetti but it would have been delicious on it's own.

Tomato-Butter Sauce
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 onion, peeled and cut in half
5 tbsp. butter

Combine all ingredients and simmer gently for 45 minutes. Discard onion and season with salt and pepper to taste.


  1. Gosh, I am so intrigued by this recipe. It seems too simple to be true.

  2. I have been using this recipe too! It is great! I add garlic, basil and crushed red pepper too. Love it!
