In 12-inch nonstick skillet or 4-quart saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat; add onions, bell peppers, and garlic and saute until onion is translucent.
Add remaining ingredients except spaghetti and cheese; stir to combine.
Reduce heat and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick, 2 1/2 to 2 hours.
Remove and discard bay leaf before serving.
For each serving, top 1 cup hot spaghetti with 1/4 of the sauce and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons cheese.
