Giuliano includes his mother’s famous tomato butter sauce that is a hit every year at his cooking school in Verona. Giuliano says, “It’s the one dish that exemplifies “Hazan family favorites”. You put four ingredients together in a pot and soon will have a wonderfully simple and delicious sauce. I tried the sauce and it was smooth and buttery. Perfect to make for a no-fuss and tasty dinner with your favorite pasta.
