Tomato Sauce Recap

This was a great and easy sauce to make. You really have to take a lot of taste and get the salt in there to make it to your liking. Next time I will try adding a bay leaf and some garlic to it.

October: Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

Extracted from Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking

2 cups canned Italian plum tomatoes, cut up with their juice
5 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, peeled and cut in half

Put canned tomatoes in saucepan, add butter, onion and salt and cook uncovered at a slow and steady simmer for 45 minutes or until fat floats from tomato. Stir from time to time, mashing any large piece of tomato in pan with a wooden spoon. Taste and correct for salt. Discard onion and serve sauce with pasta. This recipe makes six servings.

Lighter Chicken Pot Pie Recap

This was delicious. I used some roasted chicken pieces that we already had so it made it even faster to make since I did not have to cook the chicken. Will definitely make again.
