with all these lovely garden fresh tomatoes out there, is anyone cooking tomato sauce marcella hazan style? it sounds revolutionary, but hey, it's marcella hazan, can you really go wrong? no garlic, basil,etc.,...just 2 lbs. peeled fresh ripe tomatoes, one onion cut in half, 5 tablespoons butter and salt to taste. 45 mins. in a pot, simmer, stir some, done. it's getting rave reviews as the "hottest red sauce on the internet today". they had me at "marcella"--i'm in! i just might have to check out those marzano tomatoes with this recipe, too....i love simplicity wherever i can find it these days....

i didn't know it was accredited to marcella hazan, but i've made sauce using only butter, onions, and fresh tomatoes before. it was really good, very fresh tasting. best for use with really gently flavoured things like fish. the butter sauteed onions add a creamy sweetness, but the tomatoes have to be perfectly ripe and not too tart to pull it off.

i saw the recipe on mouthfuls food's website a few years ago.

it's not a real long cooking sauce or it defeats the purpose.

OK, I cannot resist. I picked a tomato on Friday that had a ... probiscus? on it. It was ridiculous. We have a Friday group and husband took it down. Stem up, it looked like a nose. Stem down, it was downright obscene. What a laugh! Been growing tomatoes for decades and never seen anything quite like it!

a man taking a rorschach exam in a psychiatrist's office--asked what he saw in the inkblot on the card, the patient answered "sex". shown six more rorschach cards, the man just kept repeating "sex" every time. the doctor finally asked him, "why do you see sex in each and every one of these inkblot cards?" the man answered, "hey, you're the one showing me all those dirty pictures." so, claire, i think this one is on you--the eye of the beholder.... :)

Pickled tomatoes are always good in my book.

you said it, charlie. a coworker brought me some pickled green tomatoes from katz's deli in nyc recently, and they were fantastic. i've never had pickled tomatoes before, but now i know what to do with all of those green tomatoes at the end of the season.

They do not have to be green. You can use red ones too. As the matter of fact they are even better. If you dig for my Ukrainina thread there is recipe there. Also there was onother thread where I even posted pictures.

Also, not sure if anybody mention that already, but home made tomato juice is awesome.
