Dinner on a Budget

Today I have decided to give you all and insight to my culinary expertise.  With a family of 6 we tend to eat on a budget most of time.

Tristan my oldest is the pickiest child I have ever meet, he does not eat red meat or meat of any type unless it is chicken or fish crazy IKR.

I decided that tonight to make Baked Spaghetti, lets face it normal spaghetti just get boring there's only so many ways that you can dress it up.

This is so simple and makes more then enough

whats needed

10-13 inch pan
Frying pan
Soup pan
Cookie sheet


1 lb Hamburger
1 green pepper
1 small onion
Garlic powder
2 16 oz jars of sauce
6 TBS Sugar
1 can mushrooms
4 cups mozzarella
Garlic bread or sticks

Preheat oven to 400 Prep time 1hr

You'll need to boil your water add some salt to keep the noodles from sticking together.  Get your frying pan heated up add the 1 lb of hamburger and garlic powder to your liking.

Add Onion and Green pepper to meat and brown Once cooked drain well place back in pan add sauce mushrooms and sugar Simmer.

Once noodles are done drain add butter to keep from sticking together.

Place line layer of sauce tot he bottom of the 10/13 pan then add a layer of noodles then another dose of sauce then rest of the noodles then the rest of sauce.  Cover with foil and back for 30 min..

While waiting you can always do like me and fold some much needed laundry, Give a bath or two, Clip some coupons my new favorite love.  Learning to live on a budget =0)

OK now take the dish out of the oven remove the foil and cover with the 4 cups of cheese more or lees for your liking.  Place back in the oven for 10 min.

OK now what else can we do with the spare time, maybe cut up a salad Oh wait that is not on the list but feel to add or alter as you wish.

Times up take it out let it set for a few

Does that not look amazing and it taste AMAZING  too !!!!

I like to take the time now to bake some bread sticks to add to this BUDGET MEAL

ENJOY I know I will!!!!!!
