Directions

Combine the tomatoes, their juices, the butter and the onion halves in a saucepan. (I like to puree first) Add a pinch or two of salt.
2.
Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for about 45 minutes, a bit less if puréed first Stir occasionally, mashing any large pieces of tomato with a spoon. Add salt as needed.
3.
Discard the onion before tossing the sauce with pasta. (I eat it!)
This recipe makes enough sauce for a pound of pasta.
