1 stalk celery, scrubbed
1 carrot, scraped and grated
400 g (14 oz) canned tomatoes
450 g (1 lb) fresh tomatoes, skinned and chopped

method

Heat the oil in a saucepan. Cook the garlic and onions over a low heat for about 4 minutes until transparent.

Remove the strings from the celery stalk and chop into small pieces, then add to the onion and garlic for the last 2 minutes.

Add all the other ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 40 minutes on a low heat.

Remove the sprig of parsley, bay leaf and bouquet garni and serve as cooked, or the sauce may be partially blended if a smoother texture is preferred.
