  1. Stir the diced tomatoes, celery, carrots, sweet onion, garlic, tomato paste, water, red wine, sage, basil, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook the sauce at a simmer until the carrots are tender, about 1 hour.
  2. Pour the sauce into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a towel and carefully start the blender using a few quick pulses to get the sauce moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean container. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the sauce in the pot.

Very good and easy meatless pasta sauce. Only change I made was sub a can of beef broth for the water-trick we learned from Rachael Ray. Made enough to freeze a quart for later-Thank you!

This is an excellent sauce...I needed to make my own as I am on a low salt diet and the commercial sauces are disasterous for sodium. Am also looking forward to making it with garden tomatoes l...

Great tasting, easy to make, used the other suggestion of beef broth instead of water.

Finally a pasta sauce my whole family likes. But still trying to find a way that it does not get so watery when served on the spagetti. Would recommend this highly.

I tried this for my christmas dinner and it was delicious...Thank you for sharing the recipe..!

Five Stars! This sauce is so flavorful and easy to make.

This was very very nice. Will make it again.

we ate it but family of 4 did not like this recipe. Self note to be skeptic cooking with red wine in the future, just not our thing. wine used: Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon

did not have celery, so added squash for fun. Very good. Added some meatballs after all was said and done. What can i say, I need meat in my life...
