Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, cook the pancetta over moderate heat until browned and crisp, about 6 minutes. Add the onion, marjoram and crushed red pepper and cook until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add the carrot and tomatoes, season with salt and simmer over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, about 40 minutes.
