* 1 Tbsp. basil
* 1 tsp. crushed oregano
* 1 bay leaf
* 1/2 cup dry red wine
* 1 cup water
* 2 tsp. Aw Shit
* 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

Heat oil in large heavy pot. Add onion, green pepper, celery and garlic and sauté until vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes, tomato puree, basil, oregano and bay leaf. Simmer 1 hour, stirring frequently. Add red wine, water, and Aw Shit Hot n' Spicy Seasoning. Simmer 1 hour longer. If sauce is too thick, add more water.
