Food prices are skyrocketing everywhere. Nothing is left untouched. The Snickers bars in our work vending machine are now $1. They used to be $.50. As a community service, I want to know your favorite frugal recipes. My favorite is spaghetti because it lasts a long time and tastes even better the next day when the ingredients have settled. I have a new blog friend, The Frugal Cook, who offers advice on how to eat on the cheap. My paper offered up three affordable recipes in the Cook’s Corner column
Here is my spaghetti recipe:
1 medium onion
3 celery stalks
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 lb. ground round
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1 medium green pepper
2 garlic cloves
6 oz. tomato paste
8 or 16 oz. package of spaghetti
Lawry's seasoned salt
Cook the spaghetti as shown on box. Dice and saute onion,
green pepper, celery, and garlic cloves in skillet with
olive or canola oil. Add ground and the seasonings
to your taste and cook until the meat is done.
Add tomato sauce and tomato paste(
add two-and-a-half 6 oz.tomato paste cans of water)
to skillet with meat and
seasonings and simmer.
Either mix all of the sauce with the spaghetti
or put the sauce on
