Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

If you are familiar with Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter, you know it is made with three ingredients, four if you count salt. Here, the ingredients are the same as her sauce, but there’s no scoring of the tomatoes and blanching them to remove their skins, and there’s no discarding of the halved onion at the end. Everything, rather, is puréed together at the end.
