If you have left over tomato sauce from an 8 ounce can, don't throw it away or stash it in the fridge where it could be forgotten. Instead, I pour the rest into an ice cube tray. After they're frozen, pop them into a ziplock bag. Whenever you need just a little tomato sauce, you have them right in the freezer. No need to open another can and no waste!

My recipe called for only 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Can I safely freeze the remainder of the can in half cup portions for future use? And if so, for how long will it retain its goodness?
Freezing is fine-I freeze solid in ice cub trays, empty into zip bags-freezer, not storage bags. Freeze for 4 months. Easy to use what you need and keep the rest frozen.
