Directions

  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 later this summer. Thanks for the recipe!

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