Freezing Tomato Paste

Tomato paste is an ingredient often called for in only 2 tablespoon increments, but it comes in a 6 ounce can.  You can freeze the extra tomato paste for another day and another recipe.  Drop tomato paste by tablespoonfuls onto a bit of parchment paper on a freezer-safe dish.  Put them in the freezer for a couple of hours until frozen, then remove from the parchment and pop them into a freezer bag, squeeze the air out and label it.  When you need tomato paste for the next recipe, just remove what the recipe calls for.  You can thaw them in the microwave in just a few seconds, or if you are making something that needs to simmer for awhile, you can toss them in frozen.
