    Chef Itchy Monkey's Note:

    A combination of several favorite recipes. I like to freeze this in 2-serving containers for quick weeknight dinners. Just remove from freezer and thaw over low heat in a sauce pan while your pasta water is boiling. You can also thaw chunks of frozen sauce along with frozen meatballs - try my "Meatballs Italiano" recipe!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the celery, carrots, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      While vegetables are simmering, strain whole tomatoes into a bowl (keep the juices), and coarsely chop the tomatoes. Set aside tomatoes and juices.
    4. 4
      Add the roasted red peppers (pureed), tomatoes, tomato paste, and dried herbs. Bring to just to a boil. Add red wine and bay leaves.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for at least 1 hour until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaves and serve over the pasta of your choice.
    6. 6
      Can be made ahead and frozen into smaller serving sizes.
