To be honest, I tried to take shortcuts but it ended up taking quite a bit of time anyway. But my guys all liked it. Yum.
Put in a pan and cook until tender:
½ cup olive oil
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
Put in a Dutch oven along with the onion and celery:
1 cup red cooking wine
1 cup water
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
2 tablespoons tomato paste (I get it in a tube)
2 teaspoons bouillon
1 teaspoon thyme
1 can (14.5 ounces) sliced carrots, drained
2 packages (11 ounces each) Steam Fresh, lightly sauced, roasted red potatoes
Bring to a boil, turn down, and simmer until potatoes are done.
