What else do you put tomato sauce on besides pasta?

Asked by SamIAm (8690points) February 11th, 2011

Dad just sent me a box filled with my most favorite pasta sauce from a restaurant at home. I’m not in the mood for pasta but want to eat the sauce (I’ve been eating it by the spoonful :)). I’d like some healthy options.

I think burnt broccoli with garlic and sauce would be delicious!

What do you use pasta sauce on?

Oh, you can make pizza if you got some dough and cheese.

Meatball subs.

Rice, almost any veg, baked potatoes, little toast pizza thingies, all sorts of stuff, in fact just about anything savory.

Sometimes I throw a bit in when I make a pot of chili.

Grilled cheese sadwiches. Or melt some cheese in it and use it for salsa with corn chips.

Cabbage rolls and stuffed peppers are two of my husband’s favorites to pour tomato sauce over. I use it for homemade tomato soup.

Chicken patties – put a little sauce on them, a little parmesan and you have chicken parmesan.
Pizza bread – spread on french bread, add toppings and cheese, bake
Frozen ravioli
Fried eggplant
Add chicken broth and veggies for vegetable soup
Calzones – roll bread dough out, add toppings and cheese, fold over and bake.
The crescent roll things like mini calzones that Pillsbury has been advertising

@SamIAm That sounds brilliant and delicious.

WestRiverrat's avatar

@bkcunningham I cook my cabbage rolls and stuffed peppers covered in suaerkraut with some tomatoe juice poured over the top.

bkcunningham's avatar

@WestRiverrat Yummie. Is it delicious? Sure sounds good.

SamIAm's avatar

Update!! I roasted veggies (broccoli, carrots, zuchinni, eggplant, cauliflower, peppers) with a little EVOO, special salt, and love. Topped with sauce and it’s amazinggggg.

French fries—after the salt, of course.

bkcunningham's avatar

@SamIAm oh that sounds good. I’m so hungry.

Toasted sourdough bread or gnocchi.

And any combination there of with some melted Mozerella on top if you so please.

blueiiznh's avatar

JLeslie's avatar

Stuffed peppers. Yum.

chyna's avatar

Chicken nuggets.

YARNLADY's avatar

Ratatouille and everything that @filmfann said

rooeytoo's avatar

I throw a can of butter beans or cook up some lentils, or broccoli or green beans and mix one or more into the sauce, then some mozzarella cheese on top and eat it just like that, no pasta or other white carbs needed.

And don’t forget @seazen’s recipe where he poaches an egg right in the tomato sauce, that is delicious too.

Wow, there are some good ideas ^ up there!

You could totally just steam up a bunch of veggies and pan fry some chicken or beef and toss it with some cheese. If the sauce already has garlic in it, then no need to add anything to the pan with the chicken except some olive oil to keep it from sticking.. Maybe some salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

my 1st answer is meatloaf. you’ve already heard that. i prefer katsup an meat loaf, myself.
you can put it on rice. i like to make a product that you can use either stewed, sliced, diced, pureed, spagetti sause, ... it starts with onions in a large pot frying in oil. add some spices. garlic and ginger. then hot peppers [uless you don’t like them. then add mushrooms. then i’ll add cooked rice. then corn and canned potatoes. sometimes i’ll use a frying pan and start out the same but i’ll add beef for stew. the beef, onions, garlic, hot peppers, ginger, spices, and i can add the mushrooms here will go into the pot with the rice and then i’ll add the corn, potatoes, and finally the tomatoe product that i choose. i makes a heavy meal that will last many days.
