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!

Re: Fantastic Deals at Liquidation World!!
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
Crockpot Chunky Tomato Soup

Vermicelli Lo Mein
Pasta with Artichokes
Barbeque Chicken Pasta
myo Rice-a-Roni- you could look this up yourself, I haven't gotten a

even gotten from this list
Whitefish And Linguine W/ Lemon-Caper Sauce
Nutty Pasta Twists
Nondairy Macaroni and "Cheese"

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)
1 1/2t basil
1t crushed rosemary
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
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
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
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 15-ounce can chopped tomatoes, undrained

1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 cup low-fat sour cream

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

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 .
