What's for dinner tonight and tomorrow? An easy, budget friendly, tasty casserole that everyone loves! I estimate the price of the casserole is about $7 total.
What you need
1 package of macaroni (on sale with coupon ($0.90)
1 jar Ragu ($1)
1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers(I roasted and froze them this past summer when in season)
1 large onion chopped
1 clove of garlic finely minced
1 package Italian sausage (on sale $1.99)
cheese to sprinkle on top
1 bag no name frozen veg (on sale $2)
What to do
Brown sausages in a frying pan. While they are cooking put the water on for the pasta and cook according to package directions. Once the sausages are cooked remove from the pan, chop and set aside. In the same frying pan cook the peppers, onions and garlic until the onions are soft. (If you used lean sausage you may have to add a bit of olive oil to the pan)
Now add sauce to the pan to heat thoroughly. Throw everything in a casserole dish and top with cheese if desired. Put the lid on the dish to melt the cheese. Heat up the frozen veggies. Dinner is served!
