PREPARATION
1.
In a large pot, cook extra virgin olive oil, chopped onion, garlic, celery stalk, fresh thyme and tomato paste with a generous pinch of salt over medium-high heat, until the onion is soft and the tomato paste starts to brown on the sides of the pot.
2.
Add dry red wine and cook for 5~6 min until almost completely evaporated.
3.
Then add the pureed tomatoes, 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese, bay leaves, chili flakes, honey, 1 tsp ground black pepper. If you're making meatballs: add all of the browned meatballs with all the juice and drippings.
4.
Bring to a simmer then turn the heat to low, cover the pot with just a small slit for steam to escape, and let simmer for 2 hours until the liquid has reduced by a third.
5.
You should give it a gentle stir once every 20~30 min to prevent burning on the bottom. Re-season it along the way with salt if needed. The sauce can be made days ahead. Before serving, gently mix the Dijon mustard into the sauce.
