Add spring onions, green pepper and celery, stirring to combine all ingredients. Stir in parsley, remaining cloves, basil and bay leaf. Mix together tomato paste, wine and sherry. Add to pan and stir well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer for 1 1/4 hours. When done, remove bay leaf and season again. Place in decorative casserole to serve.

Cook carrots with sugar, butter and water until caramelized and add to casserole. Garnish with remaining parsley.
