Directions:
In a large casserole heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent about 5-10 minutes. Add celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft about 5-10 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.
