Tomato Paste is tomatoes that have been cooked for several hours, strained and reduced to a thick, rich flavored concentrate. Next is Tomato Puree, which is cooked briefly and strained resulting in a thick liquid. Then comes Tomato Sauce is a slightly thinner puree that sometimes have herbs & onions added for additional flavor.
