Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion chopped

  • 1 celery stalk diced
  • 1 sweet green pepper diced
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt

Method

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, carrot, celery, green pepper, salt, basil and hot pepper flakes, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes.

Add tomato paste and tomatoes; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until thick enough to mound on spoon, about 30 minutes.
