- 2 pints small tomatoes (red or gold)

- 1 pound of your favorite pasta
Prepare your pasta according to package directions (save 2 cups pasta water).
Caramelize onions in heavy bottom skillet (seriously, don't skip this step). *If you are in a hurry, sauté onions until golden brown and add brown sugar to give them a beautiful sweetness.*
Add garlic and herbs to pan, sauté until fragrant. Add tomato paste and cook for a few minutes. Add grape tomatoes (crush with potato masher), salt, pepper, 1 cup pasta water and vegan butter; simmering uncovered on medium heat, for about 10 minutes.
Taste sauce for salt, etc.; toss with cooked pasta (add a bit of remaining pasta water at a time, if sauce is too thick).
