I have Spaghetti Sauce...what else can I use it for?

Okay, I'm getting burnt out on just spaghetti with my sauce, any suggestions for something different?

Are you looking for alternative sauces for your pasta or alternative things to use with your sauce?

How about a simple oil and garlic sauce? I like to throw dried cranberries in with that as well.

I like just a simple butter/olive oil/garlic,salt/pepper combo then sprinkle on some red pepper chili flakes.

I still like, and this stems from childhood, butter, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese.

I found that adding a whole chipotle pepper (or some smoked ham hock) into a Tomato sauce can give a standard tomato sauce the kick that it needs. Of course, if you're looking for something really different, why not try penne a la vodka? It's not hard to make, but it is addictive :-P

Okay, I should have worded this differently. I have sauce. I have sauce up the ying yang. I thought this was the "I only have X ingredient" section so my X ingredient is spaghetti sauce. I need alternatives for something other than just pouring it over pasta.

I had this underlying feeling you were talking about using the sauce on something else versus another sauce for your noodles but I went with what seemed more plausible.

So - to translate your question - it is:

I have spaghetti sauce - what else can I use it for?

I have some ideas but I will go change your title first.

Well, *amy* took all the good answers! I was going to say stuffed peppers too and pizza sauce.

Is there meat in the sauce?

mmmm.....

Use it as a dip for mozzarella sticks or garlic rolls
Use it as a starting point to make a "pizza soup"
Freeze it
lasagna
stuffed shells
manicotti (my favorite!)
Chicken, or eggplant, or veal parmesan
