    To a small saucepan add the tomatoes, butter, onion and a pinch of salt and cook over a medium heat until simmering. Reduce the heat, crush the tomatoes lightly as they cook and stir occasionally. Simmer, gently for 45 minutes, take off the heat and remove the onion. Serve over hot pasta with some grated parmesan and a sprinkling of ground pasta. 
Chef's Tip:
You could also use a hand blender to blend the onion into the sauce instead of discarding it.
