      Just made this last night, had forgotten all about it:

      Pasta Fagioli

      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
      listing these

      Tuna Casserole
      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 . . .
