Looking to stretch your dollar and make easy, nutritious and delicious meals – PASTA!  I stock up when I shop at Shaw’s Supermarket in my hometown of New Fairfield, CT – when they have their 10 for $10 weekly sale items.  Many times, it is pasta – my favorite!

Please keep in mind that you can change these recipes around – omitting certain ingredients to suite your taste buds and your budget.

For an even healthier dish, use Whole Wheat Pasta.  If your not crazy about the taste, mix half in with regular pasta

Do you have leftover chili – chicken – veggies – steak – hotdogs? Cook some pasta, mix with your left overs and Voila!

Cooking on a Budget – The Great Depression Way

On Good Morning America, a 93 year old great grandmother showed how she saves money by cooking the great depression way.  She learned how to cook on a budget through her mother during the Great Depression and now has her own site – “Depression Cooking with Clara” <CLICK> . 

Also, check out Clara’s Blog <CLICK>

Here is Clara’s Pasta with Peas Recipe and a tale of living through the Great Depression.

 

I love the way Clara’s kitchen looks like a grandma’s kitchen – everything from her pots, utensils and where the olive oil is kept gives her stories and cooking history.
