Procedure:

In a saucepot start cooking the pancetta over low heat to render the fat and crisp the pork.

Once the pancetta is crispy and the fat has been rendered, add onion, carrot, shallot and garlic. Cook until onions are beginning to turn translucent and the vegetables are very tender.

Add the tomatoes and the sachet, and simmer until the liquid in the pot has reduced by 2/3.

Remove the sachet and puree the sauce, adjusting the consistency with water or stock.

Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
