Little guys LOVE spaghetti! Always a kid favorite…pssssghetti!
Handful of Spaghetti Noodles ($.35)
1/2 jar Spaghetti Sauce (I’m planning on starting homemade soon…) ($.66)
1/2 lb ground beef (save other half for tacos next week…) ($.85)
1/2 green pepper ($.50)
1 Cucumber, sliced ($.67)
1/2 cup “chives” sour cream, diluted with 1/4 c milk ($.25)
1 clove garlic ($.05)
So I had a cucumber that I needed to use up, as we will be out of town for the holiday weekend! Since I don’t prefer cucumbers by themselves, I threw on some sour cream “sauce” to make it a bit tastier. I also love to soak them in balsamic vinegar! Normally we eat broccoli or green beans with our pssssghetti!
1. Cook noodles. Brown ground beef. Drain and add spaghetti sauce. Add in green pepper. Simmer under ready to serve.
2. Whisk sour cream with milk, add garlic, S/P. Pour over cukes and let sit for a bit in fridge to let flavors “mingle”!
(3. Pick green peppers out of 3 year old’s spaghetti! Note to self…next time, put green peppers in the chopper/grinder to make them less visible in the sauce! I have been known to hide MANY a veggie in spaghetti sauce! I failed, however, tonight! Like the cuke, I needed to use up the leftover pepper before leaving town!)
Cost $3.33 (with just the right amount for lunch leftovers!)
