Convenience


When I was in Italy three years ago, the chef I was working with used this tomato paste.  I was immediately intrigued.  I use quite a bit of tomato paste in sauces, soups and pastas.  The problem is that most tomato pastes come in a can.  This means that the excess has to be stored in another container.  Unfortunately, I never remember when I put it in the fridge, I usually end up with moldy paste in my fridge.  Then I open a new can and the whole ugly cycle starts again.  Enter tomato paste in a tube.  This stuff is amazing.  I can sit in the fridge for a year and still tastes great.  My local Italian grocery store sells one tube for $2.99.  Check it out!  It is worth the cost.  Happy Cooking!
