Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Add onion and saute for a couple minutes; add garlic (careful not to burn the garlic). Add beef to pot.

Add tomatoes, beef broth, tomato paste, salt, basil, thyme, pepper, and bay leaf into the meat mixture. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently until sauce is thick, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve over pasta. Sprinkle cheese on top.
