 and cook over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes until transparent.  Add
 garlic and cook another minute.  Stir in tomatoes, paste, oregano,
 basil, bay leaf, salt, pepper and bring to a boil.  Then simmer,
 uncovered for an hour or until thick.  Stir occasionally.  When
 finished the sauce should be thin and fairly smooth.  Remove bay
