Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Don't want to waste tomato paste when a recipe calls for a small amount? Use the squeeze tube version that can be refrigerated after being opened. Or spoon extra canned tomato paste in a 1-tablespoon-size dollop on a foil-lined cookie sheet and freeze until solid, then store in a resealable plastic bag in the freezer.
