Make more pasta sauce with no heat and combine. Other additives may help cut the heat but will change the flavor of the sauce.

Andy's right on the money. The only way to cut the heat is to dilute it with more sauce. If that will make too much sauce, then break the existing sauce into batches that are too small for a meal so that you can add more tomato sauce, herbs, and veggies.
