With summer winding down, we must soon bid farewell to our dear tomato. When they’re at the peak, I like to make this sauce with about 20 Roma tomatoes. A quick bath in hot water makes the tomatoes really easy to peel and add to any sauce. This is a great sauce to keep on hand and can be kept in the freezer for several months. It’s perfect for just about any meat or vegetable you want to dress or dip.
2 32-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
3 clove garlic, chopped
2 bay leaves
¼ cup olive oil
1 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Heat oil in a large stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic until translucent, 5-7 minutes. Add celery, carrots, salt, and pepper, sauté for about 10 more minutes.
Add tomatoes, bay leaves, and white wine. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 -1 ½ hours, until thick. Remove bay leaves and add oregano and thyme. Serve warm.
For a smoother sauce, blend ½ the sauce at a time in a food processor.
