Amore' Tomato Paste

If you watch the food network I’m pretty sure you’ve watch your favorite chef/cook use tomato paste in a tube time and time again and have said to yourself, “that’s a great idea”. If you buy tomato paste in a can, you always find yourself having to throw some away; or it has become a permanent fixture in the back of your refrigerator, you swear you will use it, but you never do! This is a product I have been thinking about getting for some time now, but thought it would be hard to find and expensive. Last week while waiting for our cooking class to begin, we took a little stroll through Cost Plus World Market and I stumbled across Amore' Tomato Paste (in a tube) and to my surprise it was only about $2.00 for a 4.5 ounce tube. Ironically in our cooking class that night Chef Gilligan was using the same exact tomato paste in his sauce! So I put it to the test this week (making sauce for meatball sandwiches) and it works great, taste amazing and because it's double concentrated I only had to use about a tablespoon of it. Give it a try, you may never use canned tomato paste again!
