Tomato and mascarpone pasta sauce

Dice the onion and cook it low and slow in the olive oil. Add the thyme leaves and season with salt and black pepper. It should take about 10 minutes for the onion to soften fully.

Add the garlic, let it cook with the onions for a couple of minutes, and then add the tinned tomatoes and then put the heat for a few minutes.

Add the mascarpone, let it melt in, and then squeeze the lemon juice in too.
