2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small finely chopped carrot
salt and pepper, to taste

      (or any stuffed pasta like ravioli or tortellini)
Parmesan cheese on top for topping

Blend a canned tomatoes in food processor until smooth. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan, add onion, and carrot. Sauté for a few minutes then add blended tomatoes. Simmer for 45 minutes or until thick. Season with salt and pepper. Add cooked pasta. Toss the pasta in tomato sauce (avoid stirring or mixing because the panzerotti may break open and lose its shape). Simmer in low fire for a couple of minutes.
