Never Trust Ketchup

I did something stupid while making dinner:  I used ketchup when I knew better.  Normally, ketchup is an ok sub for tomato paste—-normally, but instead of a balanced, slightly vinegary ketchup, I only had a sweet (and therefore, gross) ketchup which made my tomato sauce sweet and spicy with a less-than delightful chemical aftertaste.  I don’t think it went very well with my eggplant.  It would have gone well, except that I used half ketchup/half tomato paste to make the sauce.  Sigh.  At least now I know never to trust ketchup.
