DIRECTIONS

  • In a large casserole pot or Dutch over, heat oil over medium high heat.
  • Add onion and garlic and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper.
  • Sauté until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and bay leaves and simmer uncovered on low heat for 1 hour or until thick.
  • Remove bay leaves and check for seasoning.
  • If sauce still tastes acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time to round out the flavors.
  • Add 1/2 the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Continue with remaining tomato sauce.
  • If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and pour 1 to 2 cup portions into freezer plastic bags.
  • This will freeze up to 6 months.
