Spaghetti and meatballs.
My thrifty recipe is a can of store bought sauce, can of stewed tomatoes, and a can of tomato paste. I mix a pound of ground meat, an egg, spices, and enough rolled oats to soak up the moisture. When the sauce is simmering I drop small balls of meat into the sauce and simmer for about 40 minutes. Meanwhile the noodles cook.
Easy Cheap and Yummy!
Freezer Cooking Hint: I usually double the recipe and freeze the leftovers. Buy the cheapest brand of freezer
snap-lock bags, not the ones with the zipper slide--they don't seal as well. And the extra money for thicker plastic bags are worth the expense. I use a sheet pan in the freezer and lay the food flat. When it is frozen I can set them upright and flip through them like a card catalog. Also, they defrost quicker being flat.
