Pasta Fagioli

I ditched the original meal I had on my Menu Plan Monday for tonight...

I just wasn't feeling Cheesy Potatoe Casserole so I made Pasta Fagioli instead!

What's that you ask?

It is so quick and easy....


(2) Cans of Chunky Vegetable Pasta Sauce ($2.50 on sale at Alberstons $1.25/ea)
(2) Cans of White Kidney Beans (drained)  ($1.39 x 2)
(1) Can of chopped spinach (drained) OR you can use frozen (thawed of course) OR fresh spinach  (chopped). ($1.69 for canned)
16 oz of pasta (Elbow Macaroni, Rotini, Penne, whatever you have on hand) ($1.00 on sale)


1.  Cook pasta as directed. Drain, keep 2 cups of pasta water.
2.  Combine pasta sauce, beans, spinach, pasta and pasta water. 
3. Cook on med heat for 10-15 mins.
4.  Add salt & pepper to taste

Pair with some hot buttery french bread ($1.99).  MMM, good.


And you want to know something....This is another FRUGAL dinner. 

Total cost of ingredients:  $9.96 ($1.99 per person). 

Fed all 5 of us and we have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.


Miss K loved it. Can you tell?
