Ingredients

  • 10

    ripe tomatoes

  • 2

    tbsp olive oil

  • 2

    tbsp butter

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 1

    green pepper, chopped

  • 2

    carrots, chopped

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼

    c chopped fresh basil

  • ¼

    tsp Italian seasoning

  • ¼

    c Burgandy wine

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 2

    stalks celery

  • 2

    tbsp tomato paste

Directions

1. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Have a large bowl of iced water ready. Plunge tomatoes into boiling water until skin starts to separate, about 1 minute. Remove with slotted spoon and place in ice bath. Let rest until cool enough to handle and remove skin and squeeze out seeds. Chop 8 tomatoes and puree in food processor. Chop remaining 2 tomatoes and set aside. 2. In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion, pepper, carrot and garlic in oil and butter until the onion starts to soften, about 5 mins. Pour in pureed tomatoes. Stir in chopped basil, Italian seasoning and wine. Place bay leaf and whole celery stalks into pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to low, cover and simmer for 2 hrs. Stir in tomato paste and simmer an additional 2 hours. Discard bay leaf and celery before serving.
