      2. Add the wine and bay leaf; scrape any bits stuck on the bottom of the pot. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, until the wine has evaporated.
      3. Add the tomato paste and miso. Cook and stir for about 3-5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, tomato sauce, milk and nutritional yeast. Return sauce to a simmer, reduce to low heat and cover the saucepan. Cook another 20-30 minutes.
