Frugal Gourmet Pasta Sauce

I came across this recipe a year or two ago, but figured that it was out of my price range. I thought San Marzano tomatoes were $5/can, but I guess I was wrong! I saw them at Publix for $2.50 the other day, and I picked up a #10 can of them at Costco last week for $3.59!

So, I'm planning to cook this pasta sauce soon - I scaled it up for my giant can. The link above has a normal size if you need it

San Marzano Pasta Sauce

1 #10 can (6lb, 10oz) of San Marzano tomatoes
2 sticks + 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 yellow onions, peeled and cut in half

Throw it all in a pot and simmer for 45 minutes. That's it. (!)

In total, this makes about 3.5 jars of pasta sauce. It cost me about $5. Not bad! Of course, this is a non-organic sauce made from BPA laden canned tomatoes, so I'm not sure I'll go this route on a regular basis, but I wanted to give the recipe a try since it got such rave reviews. I will update when I have a result!
