ISO ideas for use of sauce without spaghetti

I am about to make a batch of spaghetti and spaghetti sauce.
I will let my husband have the normal spaghetti and spaghetti sauce,
but for myself, i want to shy away from the noodles, for dieting purposes, and just have the yummo sauce ....but with what?

my only idea at this point would be just with turkey meatballs

but the purpose of this post is to get your ideas!

Zucchini. Cut it into long strips with a mandoline or knife. Steam it or saute it for a just a minute or two.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

Great idea Alix.

How about using it as a dipping sauce for grilled veggies or grilled chicken breasts?

My girls love my sauce that has Italian sausage slices in it. They will a bolw and eat it as is with green salad dressing on the side.I add a lot of sausage and lots of sliced mushrooms so it's really thick.So make a thick sauce with veggies and eat like a chili.

pork veal chicken or turkey cutlet (need not be breaded)
If you like liver, it is very good with tomato sauce
over sauteed or roasted veg with or without sausage or other meat.
over tuna, swordfish, or monkfish

it's good on a baked potato or if you want a meaty flavor over some grilled portabello mushrooms
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
