Directions

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery. Cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste, water, tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, add the beans, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
