  • 1 large sweet onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper diced
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and sliced into coins
  • 1/2 cabbage chopped
  • 2 14. 5 ounces cans San Marzano diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
