What's for Dinner at Mamma's House?
Here's how I made it today. Prices are what I paid out of pocket after sales and coupons
1.3 lbs. ground beef $.33
Fresh thyme, oregano, and basil from my garden FREE
2 cans Red Gold Tomatoes $.66
2 jars spaghetti sauce ($1 for 1, $1.50 for the other) $2.50
Green bell pepper $.69
4 cloves garlic $.15
Ronzoni pasta FREE
Reynolds Slow Coooker Liner (love these!) $.21
I sometimes blend crushed carrots or squash into my sauce, and my kids (and husband) never know it! Even if I add a salad or bread, it's still super healthy and budget friendly. I like to slow cook my sauce for 5-hours. Yum!
This is usually enough sauce for about 10 hearty servings. $.53 a serving!!!
