Tomato paste? Stewed Tomatoes? Help! Munchkin Maker 2 kids; Maryland 733 posts

Lasagna rolls in a box, never made them before. Simple, pop them in the oven for an hour, done. I didn't read the box until now, but it doesn't come with sauce already on it like a box lasagna would.
I have no tomato sauce, HOW?
Anyways if I just take stewed tomatoes and tomato paste, put some seasoning and garlic over it, and put the whole mix onto the lasagna rolls, same thing? Or disaster?

not the same things. could end up in dinner disaster but then again could be the best dinner ever. im thinking the tomato paste will make it really thick and end up in disaster. i personally would run to the store real quick. good luck.

Blend the tomatoes with the paste & italian seasonings to make a sauce. If its to thick just add a little liquid

If your tomato paste is a MUCH smaller quantity than your stewed tomatoes it should be just fine.

I would suggest putting crushed tomatoes on med. heat in a pot, adding garlic, basil, salt, and some parmesan cheese if you have it then let it cook until it gets the right consistency.

Thanks ladies, I'll try blending the two together, if it ends in disaster we've got back up meals that are much quicker. Thanks again!

um i make my homemade sauce with tomato paste so Im not seeing where people are getting disaster. Mix tomato paste with water, italian seasoning, sugar, garlic salt, salt&pepper, onion powder, diced onions and youre good to go.
