three-ingredient pasta sauce

In guest on January 25, 2010 at 2:34 pm

one of my favorite guest bloggers is back to review a recipe from a popular food blog. i’m actually really glad she tried this one because there’s been a lot of buzz about it in the food blogosphere recently and i have to say i was curious.

i found this recipe on my favorite food blog smittenkitchen.com. [ah hem. she clearly means her second favorite food blog…] i trust whatever ms. kitchen does and if she says it’s good, it is. most of the time. while final results came with mixed emotions, i am glad i attempted it.

ingredients: 1 28-ounce can of whole peeled tomatoes, 5 tbsp. butter, half an onion.

first, dump tomatoes in a pot. place butter in pot. place the half onion, cut-side down into the pot.

bring to a simmer and stir occasionally, crushing the tomatoes with your spoon or spatula.

after 45 minutes or so, it’s done! I served mine with some parmesan cheese and sauteed zucchini.

my thoughts: this sauce was good. easy? yes. quick? fairly. tastes like? SPAGHETTI O’s SAUCE. I swear, just like when i was a kid, but the grown-up version. enjoy! (if you like spaghetti o’s)
