Just made this last night, had forgotten all about it:
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can navy beans (or equivalent in dry beans, soaked and cooked)
1/2 lb. uncooked pasta (any kind)
optional: julienned squash, frozen broccoli, etc.
optional: turkey sausage, sliced (about 1/2 lb), ground turkey or
beef (browned), shredded or cubed cooked chicken
In large pot, mix spaghetti sauce with equal amount water. Add
beans. Add meat if desired.
Bring to boil. Add pasta (or, cook in
separate pot as the pasta can really thicken the soup the second
day, and add pasta to individual servings). Add veggies as desired.
Reduce to simmer, and cook for about 20 minutes.
We always have
beans, pasta, and sauce on hand.
Makes 4-6 large servings.
Sauce $1.32 (on sale)
beans $ .41 (on sale)
pasta $ .50 (on sale)
sausage $1.50 (on sale)
Total: $3.73 for 6 servings with turkey sausage, $2.23 without (more
like 5 servings)
Breakfast Foods of all sorts – someone else did a great job of
Mom’s old stand by, but in a pinch it’s great.
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
1 can tuna, drained
1 regular size package egg noodles, slightly undercooked
1 can peas (or frozen equivalent)
optional: bread crumbs, fresh or canned mushrooms, an extra can of
Mix soup, milk, tuna, peas, and noodles together (with extras if
desired) Pour into greased casserole dish. Top with bread crumbs.
Bake in 350-375 preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Baked Potatoes – can “stuff” them with frozen veggies, leftover
meat, cheese, etc. for a complete meal
Beans and Rice – Cheap with canned beans, dirt cheap if you soak
your beans yourself. add spices for flavor (there are some great mix
recipes on line). it’s a complete protein, high in fiber, and low in
we keep a good stockpile of dry goods in our house, as you can see.
but it helps on the leaner weeks . . .
