Found this lovely article from CBS after reading The Lipstick Republican.
Now perhaps I am low class... But $35 bucks isn't a shoestring. Hell I made Dinner last night a lot cheaper than that... My lovely recipe... Not exacting, as thats how to make low class food.
1 handful of spaghetti probably 8 ounces.... (no more than a buck)
1 bottle of ragu or similiar product.... this one spicy italian. (2.50)
1 package of polish kielbasa chopped. (no more than 3 bucks)
1 package of stir fry veggies... various types up to you mix and match... Mexi style veggies are nice. (less than 2.50)
Brown Kielbasa, add veggies, then add sauce.... place on top of cooked spaghetti ...
9 buck meal....
can add garlic bread.... cashews in veggies.... serves 4 with leftovers.
