  1. Put fresh prepared tomatoes in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt and cook uncovered at a very slow, but steady simmer for 45 minutes, or until the fat floats free from the tomatoes.
  2. Stir from time to time, mashing any large pieces of tomato in the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Taste and correct for salt. Discard the onion before tossing the sauce with the pasta.
