Tomato paste - No waste! What to do with the extra in the can????

Many recipes call for one or two tablespoons of tomato paste.  A little can of paste has several tablespoons.  So what do you do with the extras?
FREEZE them!
Last night's dinner, Boeuf Bourguignon, called for only one tablespoon of tomato paste.  So I had Teen take the extra from the can and drop tablespoon full on parchment paper (you can use wax paper, just what I had on hand).
Pop in the freezer.  Once frozen, toss in a little Ziploc bag and pull out a tablespoon at a time as needed.
So Simple!

This idea has been shared as Somewhat Simple.
