    Made this and stashed it in the frig. It’s cold today, so wanted soup. Thought, ‘why not?’

    Put the pasta sauce in a pan, added veggie broth to thin out, some Garam Marsala to taste and heated it slowly. Served it with a little knob of butter and it was FABULOUS! Would be perfect to start a holiday meal.
