Celebrate The Sauce

If you haven't heard of Tuttorosso Tomatoes, I'm so happy to be the one to introduce you to them. Brought to you by the same folks as Red Gold Tomatoes, you can trust they know tomatoes! 

And right now, they have a new campaign that recognizes that for so many of you, preparing family meals is more than just putting food on the table. It's an art that is rooted in tradition, family and love. 

So to honor that tradition, they are currently holding a three-week promotion on their Facebook page, "Celebrate the Sauce." From now until December 10th, everyone who enters will have  chance to win in a weekly drawing of 1,000 aprons, a daily drawing of one heirloom wooden spoon and one grand prize of one Martha Stewart Cookware set. Plus, as part of this promotion, Tuttorosso has introduced a line up of Sunday Sauce recipes to inspire everyone from experienced to new cooks in the kitchen. 

I am so excited to share this new sauce with you. You know how much we love pasta suppers in our house, and homemade sauces that can be on the table in under an hour are an absolutely plus to me. Plus, let's face it, any recipe that includes the word butter is going to be delicious! It adds a silkiness and creaminess to this traditional tomato sauce that allows it to cling to every nook and cranny of the pasta. Deep, rich flavor without having to cook all day, makes this a recipe that will become a go-to in your house too. 

With the holiday gaggle of house guests on it's way, this would be a great way to feed a crowd in a yummy and budget friendly way! And don't forget to enter the Celebrate the Sauce contest today!

Buttery Tomato Sauce with Onion
2 (28 oz.) cans Tuttorosso Peeled Plum Italian Style Tomatoes, crushed with hands
2 medium yellow onions, peeled and quartered lengthwise
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 stick butter, cubed
Salt and pepper to taste
1 TBS Italian seasoning*
1 tsp. garlic powder*
Dried parsley*

In a large dutch oven, bring tomatoes, sugar, butter and onion to a boil. Add garlic powder and Italian seasoning.  Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally and mashing any large pieces of tomato with back of a wooden spoon. Cook about 45 minutes until flavors blend. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with your favorite pasta and garnish with parsley.
