  • Heat 4 tablespoons of the extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan, and sauté the carrot, celery and onion over medium-high heat until caramelized. Add the tomato sauce and simmer over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until it is slightly reduced, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil, and season until it tastes as salty as the sea. Add the pasta, and cook two minutes less than the package instructions or just before al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving the cooking water.
