Heat olive oil in a medium sized pot, then add chopped veggies. Saute for 3-5 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant and veggies begin to become soft.
Add diced tomatoes, stir, cover, and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until tomatoes begin to soften and break down.
Add water and tomato paste, stirring to create a thick sauce.
Add spices and seasonings, stir, cover, and cook for at least 30 minutes over low heat, stirring periodically.
Leave the sauce as it is for a chunky version, or alternatively, blend with a hand blender to create a smoother sauce.
