Look – I think we can agree that carrots and celery don’t belong in pasta sauce. But I subbed in some bell peppers and jalapeños… switched out dried herbs for fresh oregano, basil, and thyme… Added some red pepper flakes, more salt… Ok, I really fucked with this recipe, BUT I followed the general phasing and theory. Worked good. Flavors.
Could be 60 mins, could be all day. Depends on how much you want to simmer. More simmer, more flavor.
