Haley's Marinara

Made homemade sauce for the first time tonight and it was absolutely wonderful. 

Serves: 8-10
WW Points/serving: 3

3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 large yellow or white onion chopped
3 celery stalks chopped
3 carrots chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes
2-3 garlic cloves minced (I used 3 cause I love me some garlic!)
2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes
salt and pepper
2 bay leaves

 Start by heating the olive oil over medium-high heat.  Saute onions and garlic until onions are translucent.  Stir and keep an eye on your pot so your garlic doesn't burn.
 Add your celery, carrots, grape tomatoes, salt and pepper.  Cook until veggies are tender.
 Add your crushed tomatoes and bay leaves.   Stir well to combine.
 Cover and simmer over low heat for 30-45 minutes.  Stir occasionally to prevent burning on the bottom of your pan.  (especially if you're using cast iron like me.  this pot conducts heat VERY well, so very low heat will do the trick)
 Remove your bay leaves and taste for seasoning.  Blend with an immersion blender.
Serve and enjoy!  I served mine over spaghetti squash with ground turkey.  Sooooo yummy!
Extra sauce can be refrigerated or frozen in ziploc bags for future use.  
Try it out and let me know what you think!!
