Q: I decided to switch to using tubed tomato paste (2x concentrated) instead of the canned variety. How can I substitute tubed paste into a recipe that calls for canned paste?

Editor: Alan, when we use tubed tomato paste we generally use about half of what is called for in canned tomato paste.

Readers, how do you use tomato paste in a tube? Do you substitute 1:1, or change the amount?
