Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Dice your shallots (or onion) and pancetta to this relative size. Larger is fine, but smaller is ideal for the final sauce.

Step 2

On medium-low heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to heavy stock pot, along with the bay leaves and pancetta (or bacon).

Step 3

Add the diced shallots. Keep stirring and allow the shallots to slowly turn translucent but do not let them burn, they will cook quickly.

Step 4

Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute to cook out the raw taste of the paste. It should begin to darken in colour, but be careful that it does not burn.
