20 MINUTE BUTTER AND ONION TOMATO SAUCE

ALL RECIPES, PRIMI PIATTI, SUGHI, RAGU & PESTO (SAUCES), VEGETARIAN DISHES

If you have ever made Marcella Hazan’s glorious butter and onion tomato sauce, then you know that it can take a bit of time to make (even though it is considered to be the simplest of her sauce recipes). It tastes phenomenal, but I would rather save it for a Sunday dinner. Here is a ‘weeknight version‘ that’s ready in half the time of the original recipe. The sauce is cooked at a higher temperature but the butter and onion flavours still shine through.

ULTIMATE SOUTHERN-STYLE ITALIAN MEAT SAUCE

Whenever I make this for dinner, there is always silence at the table. This is our favourite meat sauce. It’s thick, rich and full of fresh ingredients. Most sauces are simmered for long periods of time, but this one is ready in under an hour. I add an unusual, but common household ingredient that tenderises the meat. Keep reading to find out what it is. 🙂
