Adapted from Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce With Onion & Butter.
The original recipe is beautifully simple & I tried not to take away from that.
I made one technique change, pulsing the tomatoes in a blender in lieu of chopping, this made clean up easier as tomato leakage is inevitable on a cutting board.
Next, the recipe, I tested butter for Ghee, which was an oily mess! Then shallots instead of onions, which added nothing.
Finally, I added in a splash of fish sauce and we had a winner! The fish sauce added umami and flavor depth without complicating a simply delicious recipe.
