Tomato Paste Taste Test Tuesday – Episode 143By
Tomato Paste is a very versatile ingredient that often gets overlooked or only used when making a big red sauce for pasta. Paste comes in cans and also tubes for added versatilaity. What is nice about the tubes of paste is that it gives you more of a chance to experiment using in other dishes. Making a quick sauce on the stove for meat you can add a dash of paste in adding another layer of flavor to the dish, along with anchovy paste in the tube I think they should be a staple in every cook’s fridge.
Paste is mostly used in red sauce to help give it body and a depth of flavor not often achieved with tomatoes on their own. I like to use it for making quick sauces for pizza or a light base for a focaccia bread. Enjoy
