      Sauce as in you just pureed the tomatoes? How about tomato soup or bloody marys?

      If you doctored the tomatoes, then disregard.

        I did doctor them- the sauce has other chopped veggies in it as well as seasoning...

          OK -- still good for soup, imo, but not bloody marys. Then again, vodka makes everything good!

      1. Use it, in addition to wine and some other add-ins, to braise short ribs, roast, brisket, etc.

        Vegetable soup, chili, manicotti made w/ crepes instead of pasta tubes, sloppy joes, etc.
