Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat and cook the onion until is translucent.
When the onion starts to turn translucent, add the chopped garlic, the bay leaf, and the grated carrot. Leave to cook until the carrot is tender.
Add the penne pasta and the peppers. Mix well and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Splash with white wine or port. Let it simmer, stirring from time to time.
Remove the bay leaf and add the tomato passata, stirring well.
Finally, add the vegetable stock, stir, taste and season again.
Bring back to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook, covered, for about 20 minutes (more or less time depending on the brand of pasta you are using and how you like it cooked: al dente or more cooked). Stir from time to time, checking the cooking point of the pasta. If you think it is running out of sauce, add a little boiling water, adjusting the seasoning if necessary.
Serve the pasta with a sprinkle of oregano and slices of parmesan cheese.
Tip: you can use other vegetables, such as leek, pumpkin, or even spinach (add the spinach in the last minutes of cooking, or even off the heat).
Happy New Year!
