Tomato Sauce

Extra virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
3-4 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced
Sea salt
Generous pinch dried oregano
1, 6-ounce can tomato paste
2 large cans diced tomatoes, do not drain juices
1 carrot, left whole
2 bay leaves
3-4 sprigs fresh basil, leaves removed
Cracked black pepper

Place a small amount of oil, onion and garlic in a soup pot over medium heat. When the onions begin to sizzle, add a pinch of salt and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste, 2 cans of water (tomato paste can) and stir until smooth. Add tomatoes, a light seasoning of salt, carrot and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and cook, covered for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove carrot and bay leaves; season taste with salt and pepper; stir in basil and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes more.
