EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To complete the meal, serve with hot cooked pasta and a green salad.

Italian cooks use small amounts of tomato paste to boost tomato flavor and thicken tomato mixtures; they would rarely use an entire 6-oz can. Purchase tomato paste in a tube that can be refrigerated, or spoon out dollops of leftover tomato paste from a can, and freeze them. Then place in a freezer bag to use in future recipes.
