Tomato Sauce with Butter & Onion

This sauce is the easiest yet. So easy in fact, that I don't always make homemade pasta to go with it. (shhh, don't tell anyone!) But seriously, if you are looking for a simple dish you can make with ingredients you already own, try these three:

Yes, that's it. Just tomatoes, butter and onion. Pour a can of whole peeled tomatoes, with their juice, into a pan. Add 5 tablespoons of butter and half an onion (peeled, but not cut). Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes until thickened. Stir occasionally to break up tomatoes.

Discard the onion (save it for later!), and serve over cooked pasta. This serves 3-4 people, depending on how much sauce you like on your pasta. Even your pickiest of eaters will like it!
