Prep:
5 min
Cook:
1 hr 15 min

Yield:
2 quarts of sauce

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 onions, chopped
  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 cans (28 ounces each) plum tomatoes in tomato puree
  • Salt and pepper
Directions

In a large non-reactive saucepan heat olive oil. Add onions and carrots and reduce heat to low. Add 1/4 cup of water and garlic. Cover and cook gently until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in tomatoes with puree, using a wooden spoon to break up tomatoes by mashing them against the sides of the saucepan. Add remaining 1/2 cup of water, cover and simmer over low heat for 1 hour, stirring now and then. Press sauce through a sieve or food mill and discard solids. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Use immediately or ladle into freezer containers. This sauce can freeze up to a year.
