  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2-3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2-3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup red wine
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp oregano, dried
  • 1 Tbsp basil, dried
  • 1/2 Tbsp thyme, dried
  • 4 cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes


Sauté onions in olive oil over medium heat until well caramelized (this takes about 20-30 minutes).


Add each of the following ingredients one at a time and stir them until you can smell them: carrots, celery, pepper, and garlic.


Add oregano, basil, and thyme.


Add the red wine and stir until it is almost completely evaporated. We used this delicious Shiraz Cabernet blend!

Finally, add diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Let simmer for about 30 minutes. Enjoy with any dish of your choice!
