Place a large cast-iron pan or a dutch oven over medium heat. Add two tablespoons of olive oil and vegetables. Saute for 8 - 10 minutes, then add the tomato paste. Stir, and cook for another two minutes. Pour in the red wine, and add the bay leaves and thyme. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 3 - 4 minutes for the alcohol to evaporate.
