  4. 1 garlic clove, minced
  5. 1 1/2 pounds plum tomatoes
  6. 1/2 cup dry white wine

  1. In a nonreactive medium saucepan, melt the butter in the olive oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the tomatoes are soft, about 25 minutes. Pass the sauce through a food mill or strainer into a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract the juices. Serve warm.
