Okay, my first week's Bargain Meal from Price Chopper is pretty simple.
1 jar of Bertolli pasta sauce $1.99
16 oz of Barilla Pasta $1.00
1 lb sausage $1.99 (you will have to buy a 2-3 pack but we'll only use one pound)
Fresh Italian loaf of bread 99cents
1 can DelMonte cut green beans
Final cost = $6.79 (serves 4 with leftovers = approx. $1.70 per person)
Pour sauce into a saucepan and bring to a low boil (you don't want to burn the sauce). Add sausage and let simmer for about an hour. Cooking the sausage right in the sauce will add more of a homemade taste to the jar sauce. Cook pasta as directed.
Green Beans - 2 options
1. Cook as directed and serve on the side with pasta and sausage
2. Marinate green beans in some italian dressing for an hour or so. It makes a tangy "italian" salad to go along with the pasta.
