  1. In a heavy saucepan, heat half of the oil. Add the onion, and cook over low heat until soft.
  2. Stir in the celery and chopped bell pepper, and cook for 5 minutes more.
  3. Raise the heat to medium high, and add the red wine vinegar and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Lower the heat, cover the pan and simmer until the veggies are soft, about 30 minutes.
  5. Puree the sauce through a food mill or a food processor. Push pureed sauce through a sieve with a spatula. Set aside.
