I say this with love…even my husband can make this tomato sauce. He was the first to call me and discuss the obit of our grand dame of Italian cooking, Marcella Hazan. That's where I saw the recipe, ringing bells about butter and tomatoes that had faded from memory. (Click here for the recipe)
My advice – add this weapon to your arsenal of kitchen favorites. The handful of ingredients are readily available from pantry and fridge – a savior for last minute family dinners or entertaining.
And let's not pretend that you are butter averse…I saw you eating over-priced pastries at the farmer's market. 😉
Btw – I didn't have enough canned tomatoes, adding chunks of late summer faves doesn't hurt a bit.

I have been making this sauce for over 10 years from Marcella, and it is always a hit, plus super easy and quick to pull together when you find yourself with house full of children and parents who are hungry!
Thank you Betsy! I will put this in my “husband folder” as well…
I always have those ingredients on hand and that is SO much better than a jar of sauce!
OH my Goodness! I made the same mental note to honor Ms Hazan with this sauce when I learned of her passing.May I also say I miss you on Siirius XM… Starz doesn’t cut it. Sorry:)
