In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat oil until smoking. Add jalapenos, almonds and onions and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add white wine and tomato sauce and bring to a boil. Add anchovies and return to boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Pour into warm bowl, sprinkle with scallions, basil and mint and serve with grilled bread drizzled with good oil.
Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until translucent, but not brown (about 10 minutes). Add the thyme and carrot and cook 5 minutes more. Add the tomatoes. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to just bubbling, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Serve immediately, or set aside for further use. The sauce may be refrigerated for up to one week or frozen for up to 6 months.
