1 14.5-oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
5 dashes Worchestershire sauce
5 dashes Tobasco sauce
3 oz tomato paste
1/2 c reduced-fat cheddar cheese; shredded
fresh Italian parsley leaves

If you want a truly vegan meal, skip the cheese or use a soy-based alternative. [I posted this recipe.]
