Frances Anne Stultz


3 Tb olive oil
½ medium onion sliced into very thin crescents
4 cloves garlic
1 large can Italian style peeled tomatoes (I sometimes use Italian stewed tomatoes instead)
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp dried oregano
2 Tb chopped parsley
½ stick butter – optional!*
Grated parmesan cheese
½ - 1 package angel hair pasta (depending on ratio of sauce to pasta that you prefer)

In frying pan, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil.
Stir until onion is golden but not brown. Remove garlic and discard.
Drain can of tomatoes.
Add tomatoes to blender for 3 seconds.
Slowly pour pureed tomatoes into frying pan, stirring constantly.
Add salt, pepper, basil, oregano.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile boil pasta and drain.

Pour sauce over pasta in large bowl and toss together.
*Frank liked to toss the pasta with butter along with the sauce

Serve and top with Parmesan.

Personal Notes:
“Dick and I found this recipe in the newspaper in the 1970’s. It was Frank Sinatra’s favorite pasta recipe and it became a favorite of ours too. It smells so good and as Dick would say, ‘it hits the spot!’ Hope you enjoy!”
- Grandmom Stultz
