Hi, I cut up 2 zucchini, a half of onion, and a couple of garlic cloves. I put them in a sauce pan, cover it with the tomato sauce, and let it simmer until the zucchini is soft.I also add some italian seasoning, and a dash of salt & pepper. I serve it with grated romano cheese. Delish. It is what I eat when I make the family pasta.

ok this has no calories, no fat, nothing to do with a recipe. a hint for your copper bottom pans. pour your extra tomato sauce on the copper of your pan to get the tarnish off. let it sit for a bit, hours over night or just later. the pan will look great. can use any tomato product.

Eggplant parmesan. You'll be amazed at how one serving fills you up, and is the most delicious thing ever. Let me know if you need a recipe!

I love tomato sauce :)
Make mini pizzas! Use a bun [If you can find those really thin (burger first) buns use those] - toast them a little bit, spread some tomato sauce on them, sprinkle some low fat, ff, vegan cheese on top, with any chopped veg/meats you like... and put under the broiler til the cheese is melted!
Delicious snack and not a lot of calories if you use the right cheese (and meats).

I like to use it sometimes in crock pot with beef roast, peppers, onions, garlic and a small can/jar of tomato sauce for slow cooking.(also spices)

How about for a tomato soup/veggie soup/ minestrone soup

My mother in law also makes a chicken dish on the stove top with onions, green olives, peppers and chicken with a bit of tomato sauce she then serves the entire chicken dish with a side of rice.

At the weekend, I browned some ground turkey with some onions, then added some tomato sauce and put them in some low calorie wraps, was really delicious.

I have lots and lots of cans of tomato sauce, thanks to Costco, but I'm not really sure what to do with them. I can't really use them on pasta, because pasta is a binge trigger food for me. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
