    1. Saute onion in 2 tbsp of garlic olive oil over medium heat until onion starts to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
    2. Add carrot and celery. Cook until softened, an additional 4-5 minutes.
    3. Add beef. Brown until no pink remains. Drain fat.
    4. Add wine and simmer until mostly evaporated, 10-15 minutes.
    5. Add cream and simmer until reduced by half. About 7-10 minutes.
    6. Stir in tomato sauce, remaining olive oils. Place bay leaf in top of sauce with stem sticking up (for easier removal later).
    7. Cover and simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes.
    8. Salt and Pepper to taste.
    9. While sauce is simmering, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.
    10. Combine sauce with pasta noodles and use reserved pasta water to thin out sauce if necessary.
    11. Serve hot with Parmesan Cheese on top.
