Is it OK to boil tomato sauce?
Yes, with any kind of ‘stewing’ sauce, the flavour improves the longer you cook it (provided it’s a slow, gentle process). The longer you leave it, the more chance the flavours have to ‘marry’. I have a recipe for a pasta sauce that calls for 6 hours of slow simmering!
What is canned tomato sauce used for?
SWAP TIP: With some additional seasoning and cooking, canned tomato sauce can be used in place of jarred pasta or pizza sauce or in stews, braises, or casseroles where a strong, sweet tomato flavor is desired.
How long does tomato sauce last in the fridge?
Once opened, tomato-based sauces are only good for five days to a week. Don’t wait for the mold to form. In many cases, you won’t see the mold in the sauce after five days, but it actually could be there. Some mold produce toxins that can be harmful, so why take the risk?
What can I put on top of rice?
Here are just a few of my best ideas, but the list certainly doesn’t end here!
- Butter and parmesan cheese.
- Toasted sesame seeds.
- Creamy gravy.
- Cinnamon and brown sugar.
- Sauteed garlic, mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.
- Broccoli flowerets and cheese.
- Toasted peanuts or cashews.
Is hot sauce good on rice?
A really, really good idea! Basically, you just add a tablespoon or so of Sriracha sauce to your cooking liquid. If you’re worried about it being too spicy (because Sriracha sauce is pretty spicy), don’t be. It’s just enough spice to give your rice some kick, without being overpowering.
Do you season rice before or after cooking?
Season the rice with what you’re cooking. Any aromatic herb or vegetable goes a long way toward adding a bit of intrigue to a simple pot of rice. Very often, some of the same seasonings going into the main dish are great for the rice as well.

Does canned tomato sauce need to be cooked?
Um, no. Canned tomatoes should always be cooked and have no place in a BLT or salsa fresca. A long simmer in soups, braises, and sauces will soften them up, concentrate their flavors, and get rid of any bitter or tinny tastes.
Does tomato sauce have to be heated?
Really you do not need to cook the sauce. The sauce just needs to be warm like the noodles. Otherwise it could be eaten cold. The more you heat the sauce the thicker it gets.
