    Default Fantastic Deals at Liquidation World!!


    I just wanted to share with everyone some of the great deals I got this
    morning at my local salvage store. I don't usually get that many good deals,
    so I was blown away by what they had this morning:

    -a 20 lb. box of spinich noodles $3.00
    - a 20 lb. box of fettucine $3.00
    -12 packages of egg noodles $0.25 each
    -16 packages of pearl pasta $0.25 each
    -29 cans (28 oz each) diced and whole tomatoes $0.10 each
    -6 28 oz cans pasta sauce $0.50 each
    -3 100 oz cans crushed tomatoes $1.50 each
    -gallon jug of bruschetta starter (basically flavoured oil) $0.50

    And remember, all those prices are in Canadian dollars!! We won't be wanting
    for pasta or tomatoes for a while! If anyone has any unusual and easy
    recipes for noodles or canned tomatoes, I would love to try them!!

    Have a great (and frugal!) day!

    Do I have recipes?!?! You bet! Tell you what- I will share a couple
    tried and true and then list others so you can tell me what you are
    interested in, ok? I'll include recipes for the pasta AND the
    tomatoes... as I have a lot of pasta recipes that don't use
    tomatoes.

    Crockpot Chunky Tomato Soup
    Hoppin' John Pasta
    Vermicelli Lo Mein
    Pasta with Artichokes
    Barbeque Chicken Pasta
    myo Rice-a-Roni- you could look this up yourself, I haven't gotten a
    recipe to really work for me yet
    Garlic Chicken Pasta
    I have a list of both warm and cold pasta tosses, that I may have
    even gotten from this list
    Whitefish And Linguine W/ Lemon-Caper Sauce
    Nutty Pasta Twists
    Nondairy Macaroni and "Cheese"
    Cheese and Pasta Pie
    Spaghetti Vesuvius
    Luscious Layered Dinner (a crockpot casserole)
    spaghetti peices could easily sub for pasta shapes in minestrone and
    similar italian soups- I have some recipes if you need them- and
    would also make a good chicken noodle soup- sorry, no recipe
    Pistou Veggie Soup
    Crock Bean Chili
    Chili sin Carne
    Black Bean Soup


    Simple Italian Herb Pasta
    from Two Sisters cookbook- you can buy online
    This recipe made me very popular with DH's co-workers, but he's a
    little tired of it.

    1 lb. angel hair (or other) pasta
    1 1/2c. olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced (I double this or more)
    2t salt
    1 1/2t basil
    1t oregeno
    1t crushed rosemary
    1t thyme

    Cook and drain pasta. In a small bowl, combine remaining
    ingredients. Add oil mixture to pasta and toss well. To make an
    entree, add any of the following ingredients: sauteed broccoli, red
    peppers, carrots, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes or cauliflower.



    pasta topping (TNT)
    This is a great contrast- crunchy topping on soft noodles, and DH
    loves it!

    1/3 c. parmesan
    1 c. bread crumbs
    2T olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

    Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and
    garlic; drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over. Stir until breadcrumbs are
    golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add Parmesan cheese
    and toss to blend. Set aside.


    Mexican-Style Bow Ties ** So good!! if you like tex-mex at all
    from Leanne Elly's Menu-Mailer
    Serves 8

    8 ounces bow tie pasta (or whatever other pasta you prefer)
    8 ounces lean ground beef
    1 16-ounce can pinto beans -- drained (or equivalent homemade, 2
    cups)
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 15-ounce can chopped tomatoes, undrained
    1 8-ounce cans whole kernel corn -- drained
    1 small green bell pepper -- chopped
    1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use low-fat)
    1/2 cup sliced green onions
    1 cup low-fat sour cream
    1/2 cup salsa
    1/2 cup broken tortilla chips

    Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.

    In a medium skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Add beans, cumin
    and chili powder; heat through. In large bowl, combine pasta, meat
    mixture, tomatoes, corn, green pepper, cheese and onions. In small
    bowl, combine sour cream and salsa. Add to salad mixture and toss
    well. Serve warm, garnished with tortilla chips and additional salsa.

    Sodium. Exchanges: 2 1/2 Grain(Starch); 1 Lean Meat; 1/2 Vegetable;

    SERVING HINTS: This easy and fast to prepare skillet dinner would be
    great with a spinach salad. I make mine very simply with 1 clove
    pressed garlic, rice wine vinegar and olive oil (2:1) tossed well.
    Everyone loves it.

    Also, regarding the tomatoes, I'm sure you could substitute the
    diced and whole canned tomatoes for fresh tomatoes in many recipes.
    Check out http://southernfood.about.com/library/info/blcooks.htm,
    letter 'T' under food quantities and yeilds for how many cups to sub
    for one tomato, etc. Very helpful link .

    HTH,
    Lindsey
