How to make it
- In a large pot heat the olive oil and saute the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes. Sitr occasionally.
- Add the carrots and tomatoes. Stir again.
- Season the sauce to taste and add a pinch of sugar (or more if needed) to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.
- Lower the heat and let the sauce simmer for 1 hour, pan uncovered.
- Add the basil and simmer for another 5 minutes and discart the bay leaf.
- I like to reduce the sauce to a puree using a hand blender, but you can leave this step out.
