Amore Italian Tomato Paste -- 4.5 oz
More Flavor than other pastes
This paste is convenient to carry back and forth between cook sites and is really tasty. It has a nice mellow sweetness that adds a lot of nice depth to a dish without adding too much salt or the canned taste of a cheaper paste. Also good for quick cooking say when you are camping. Use what you need and none that you don't with the squeeze tube.

I like buying tomato paste in tubes because there is much less waste than when opening a whole can. One tube can last a long time when you only need one or two tablespoons. Great taste.

Great Flavor. Very convenient packaging
I use the in a variety of recipes from soups and stews to spaghetti sauce made from scratch. The flavor has the authentic Italian taste that some canned varieties lack.
The other problem with canned tomato paste is that many recipes require only a tablespoon or two each. Since most cans are at least a few ounces that creates either a store problem or a lot of waste. This product's tube package solves that problem. It is very convenient to use exactly what the recipe needs with no waste. It lasts a long time and maintains it's fresh taste in the refrigerator for weeks. While it is a bit more expensive than canned, Vitacost's price is lower than most supermarkets in my area.

Great way to ship tomato paste to my mom overseas
My mom spent 20+ years in the U.S. before moving back to Korea -- she does NOT like commercially available pizza made in Korea.
She will make her own pizza at home and likes using this brand (i.e. it doesn't come in a heavy can or fragile glass).
I like the convenience for recipes like my shepherd's pie that only requires a spoonful of tomato paste.
All the Amore products I've used have been great.

I make my own pizza, and this is perfect for the sauce, as I don't use much. With a few spices added, it really is wonderful!
