  2. Add the onion, garlic, celery, and bay leaf, and gently sauteĢ, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes with the blended tomato paste. Season with pepper to taste and add the oregano.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes, until the tomatoes have completely collapsed.
