In a large  pot, heat the oil over a medium  flame. First , add the onions and garlic ,  saute until the onions are translucent, about  7-8  minutes.  Secondly , add the celery, carrots, salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 8 minutes.  Now add the tomatoes and bay leaves, and simmer uncovered over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 1 hour . Cover and simmer another 15 mins.  Discard the bay leafs and season the sauce with more salt and pepper, to taste.  You  can make the sauce a  day ahead or freeze for future use !
