Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Melt a few tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat & cook onions until caramelized, set aside. In a separate saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium-high heat along with the tomato sauce, cream, tomato paste, & half of the seasoning (1 tbsp). Bring to a simmer, lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then stir in caramelized onions.
