Monday Menu: Cheapest and Easiest Ever Fettucine Alfredo

This is one of those that I absolutely LOVE when I make it, and then for some reason tend to forget about it!

FETTUCINE ALFREDO

Mix together in saucepan (A whisk works nicely)

  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup (I stocked up at $.50, now back up to $.59 at Save-A-Lot)
  • 1 Can Evaporated Milk ($.69 at Save-A-Lot)
  • A “glob” of butter or marg. (prob. 2-3 TBS)
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt to taste

Cook separately pasta noodles of your choice (I used fettucine noodles today, but shells or bow tie would work nicely as well)

Simmer the sauce for a few minutes, then add cooked noodles…..and ENJOY!!!!!  (Add parsley flakes on top if you wanna get all fancy 🙂 )

I’m always surprised at how “yummy” this is…..To make a more hearty meal, add chicken or broccoli (I like using shell noodles and broccoli together- makes me feel like I’m at the Pasta House! 🙂 )

**Evaporated milk is also a good thing to keep on hand.  You don’t need a HUGE supply, but keeping 6-12 cans in your stockpile will be really handy for several inexpensive recipes. (This one, and Tater-Tot Casserole is what I use it for.)  Once you get your stockpile built up, you will find your grocery bill start to go down, down, down!

Eating frugally for the Glory of God,
