A question about a recipe: Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter


I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter" from Genius Recipes. It says:

Due to force of habit, i ended up pureeing the skinned tomatoes, will that drastically affect the quality of the end product..Its simmering away right now, is there anything I shd do to bring it up to Marcellas standards..

Hi Panfusine -- that sounds perfectly fine. When you use the food mill, it comes out pretty much that way anyway -- quite loose and liquid. Just simmer it until it's as thick as you like your sauce to be. It will be great!

Thanks Kristen, the texture appeared as soon as the liquid had evaporated sufficiently. It looks soo good & my kitchen smells heavenly, Can't wait to have it for dinner!
