Help! I forgot the tomato sauce...

I'm making a BBQ sauce that calls for 11/2 cups of tomato sauce and forgot to pick up the tomato sauce. Is there anything I can substitute? The recipe also calls for cider vinegar, tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, and various other ingredients. Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Ketchup. It will make it sweeter, of course, but it'll be just as good -- maybe better. (Indeed, a quick "barbecue" sauce can be made of sauteed onion, garlic powder, ketchup, vinegar, and worcestershire sauce.)

    1. Do you have any fresh tomatoes?
