Tomato Sauce with Heavy Cream

  • 2 1/2 cups canned imported Italian plum tomatoes, with their juices
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons very finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons very finely chopped carrot
  • 3 tablespoons very finely chopped celery
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • Step 1

      Place tomatoes in the bowl of a food processor and pulse twice to break up tomatoes; set aside.

    • Step 2

      Cook butter and onion in a medium skillet over medium heat until browned. Add carrot and celery; cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, and reduce heat until mixture just barely simmers. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Season with salt.

    • Step 3

      Add heavy cream and return saucepan to medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until sauce is heated through, about 1 minute. Use immediately.
