Easiest Tomato Sauce
Canned San Marzano Tomatoes (peeled)
medium white onion, halved
Handful of Fresh Basil leaves w stalks
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Salt & Pepper
Parmesan for Serving
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a small pot, bring to a boil, simmer for 40 minutes
Extricate the onion halves and basil, puree for a smooth sauce or roughly mash for a chunky one.
Adjust seasoning. Makes enough for 1lb of pasta.
The quality of ingredients is key - I greatly prefer San Marzano tomatoes for their robust flavor but you can substitute for the equivalent amount of fresh tomatoes
