  • 2 or 3 stalks celery and leaves, chopped fine
  • 2 small carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 generous tablespoon oil
  • 3 fresh ripe tomatoes, or 1/2 cup canned tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chopped parsley (sprinkle)
  • 1 pound shell or elbow pasta
