1 onion, finely diced
1 large carrot, finely shredded
3 cloves garlic, minced
Dried basil and oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
I used my food processor to dice the onion and carrots, and the fine shredder attachment for the carrot. You want the vegetables to be as fine and thin as possible.
Sauté the vegetables in olive oil for a few minutes. I like to add the herbs, as this brings out their flavour.
Add the crushed tomatoes and the remaining seasonings. Bring to the boil, then simmer on low until the vegetables are tender.
