Simple Marinara Sauce
In a medium sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat.
Add the onion and saute until translucent, approximately 3-5 minutes.
Add the garlic, celery, and carrots. Also add the bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Cook until fragrant, approximately 1 minute.
Add in the tomatoes and water. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to low.
Simmer for at least 15 minutes, ideally one hour for the flavors to develop. For a smooth sauce (or to hide the veggies), puree in a blender.
If your tomatoes taste a little tart or sour, add a pinch of sugar.
