Default Quick Tomato Sauce

I love quick good recipes. This one is a keeper-it's from Cooks Illustrated. It tasted really fresh-I used Tuttorosso crushed tomatoes. I really like the Whole Food Brand crushed tomatoes as well. I only had salted butter so I used that and used a bit less salt.

High-quality canned tomatoes will make a big difference in this sauce. Our preferred brands of crushed tomatoes are Tuttorosso and Muir Glen. Grate the onion on the large holes of a box grater."

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup grated onions (see note)
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
    • 2 medium garlic cloves
    • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes (see note)
    • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • to taste ground black pepper

  1. Makes 3 cups, enough for 1 pound of pasta.
  2. Heat butter in medium saucepan over medium heat until melted.
  3. Add onion, oregano, and teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated and onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes and sugar; increase heat to high and bring to simmer.
  5. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.
  6. Off heat, stir in basil and oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve.
