This sauce has been on my mind since a long time to share on the website, but almost all cooking and eating gets done at night, a time not so good for photographs. This time I planned an evening dinner, forcing everyone to eat as early as possible in order to get this right! So here is the most basic, simplest tomato sauce you will ever make from the legendary Marcella Hazan – I’ve shared an extra step on how to make it with fresh tomatoes, because no house in India I know keeps tomato paste or canned tomatoes!
This is a sauce that envelopes each spaghetti in the perfect proportion and the hints of butter through it does wonders to the flavour. Trust me when I say, you will not miss the garlic, extra herbs and all that jazz.
