Ingredients

4 tomatoes (ripe)
50 grams butter
1/4 onions
1/2 cup water
sugar
salt
ground black pepper
tomato sauce (optional)

Directions

1Cook the tomatoes in boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove them from the water and place them in cold water for a few moments. Take them out, peel them and either mash them up or chop into small pieces.
2Add the tomatoes, butter, onion, water, and a pinch of sugar to a pot. Mix well.
3Cook everything on medium heat and once the mixture begins to boil, lower the heat and cover the pot. Allow everything to cook for 40 minutes.
4Once the excess liquid has evaporated and the sauce is somewhat thick, remove the onion.
5Add a pinch of salt and black pepper. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil. Add a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce if needed.
6Pour on your favorite pasta or set it aside to use for other pasta sauce recipes.
