  1. DOUBLE TOMATO HERB SAUCE REST 1. Make Double Tomato Herb Sauce: Combine sun-dried tomatoes with boiling water to cover in small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Drain. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook, stirring, 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add sun-dried tomatoes and remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, 1½ hours. Puree sauce in batches in food processor, transfer to bowl. (Makes 7 cups.)
