Ok, I bought a carton of this flavoured with garlic and herbs, is it suitable to use as a bolognase (?) sauce with mince?

I use it as the tomato base for pizza - if you don't use the whole carton it freezes well, btw.

Yes but cook it down, it will enrich the colour, flavour and it will make it much thicker. Chuck a glass of red wine in with it and cook down (reduce by about 50%, imo) and it will make a delicious pasta sauce.

You might want to add a pinch of sugar too, just to take the edge of any acidity (as well as s&p)

I usually peel and chop tomatoes for my pasta sauce base and just can't be arsed doing this anymore, so hopefully this will be a good alternative.

it's perfect for that purpose hoolagirl, just treat it as you would chopped toms
