Sometimes when you have to use a small can of tomato sauce, you may not need more than 3-4 tablespoons. Instead of keeping it the fridge, "just in case I need it" and then finding it after a month moldy, I pour the remaining sauce into ice cube trays and freeze them. When frozen, I pop them into zip loc bags. You can use them frozen right from the bag. I think 1 cube is maybe 1 1/2 Tbsp? I find it so easy!

This is a great idea cause I've lost lots of tomato paste due to hoping to use soon and keeping in the fridge and it ended up going bad! Thanks for a good tip!

When a recipe calls for a small amount of tomato sauce, you can have extra sauce left over. Mix the unused sauce with a little water and pour into ice cube trays. Freeze and store in freezer bag or container.
