Dinner in under 15 minutes for $1.37

on January 9, 2012

Tonight was a really simple dinner of spaghetti with meat sauce and salad.  I used the other 1/2 of the pound of browned meat from when I made Taco Mac and Cheese and about 2 cups of sauce from when I made pizza.  This dinner took me under 15 minutes (only as long as it takes to boil water, and cook the noodles)

To make: Cook noodles according to box.  Heat up sauce and meat together. Add a little butter to noodles when done and top with sauce.

The cost:

Noodles: $1.08 for the box, and I used about 1/3 so 0.36

Deer Meat: Free

Sauce: $1.24 for a large can that I used about 1/4 of so 0.31

Salad: 1 bag cost $1.39 and we used about 1/2 so 0.70

Total: $1.37 with some leftover for lunch!
