Giada's Marinara

This simple marinara is one of my classic standby recipes. Crushed tomatoes get flavored with onions, garlic, celery and carrots, creating a richly flavored sauce that you can use on anything from pasta (even XL pasta like Candele Lunghe, below!) to pizza.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large casserole pot, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the celery, carrots, and 1/2 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bay leaves, and simmer uncovered over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 1 hour. Remove and discard the bay leaf. Season the sauce with more salt and pepper, to taste. (The sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat before using.)
