Saucy Meatball Spaghetti and Garlic Bread!

There is nothing like sitting down to a plate full of noodles, sauce, tasty mushrooms and delicious meat balls. Unless, if you had a side of garlic bread to go along with it!
This is a meal I have often. All the components can be found at a local Dollar Tree. While this dish might take a few more ingredients then some other meals here, it is well worth it! It is a hardy meal guaranteed to fill the stomach!

What to Buy
24 Oz Can of Hunts Pasta Sauce
12.25 Oz of Columbia Spaghetti Noodles
10 Oz Jar of Pampa Mushroom Pieces & Stem-
1-2 Bags of Circle-a-Ranch Home-style Meatballs
Package of Furtani Garlic Bread
Colonna Grated Parmesan Cheese

Put'n It Altogether!

Depending on how many you are serving, heat your water and cook your noodles. When your noodles are half way cooked, put your garlic bread in the oven and start your sauce.

Prepare the Sauce and mushrooms in a medium sauce pan with the meat balls until heated. Takes usually only a few minutes to cook so try to time it with when your garlic bread and noodles finish. Otherwise, put it on simmer to keep it warm after it is done

When all is done, server and enjoy! Yum!

a 1-4 serving meal for only $6!

Introducing the Idea

Greetings everyone.
My name is Errol Coder. Just like many of you out there during this low economy, one of the primary succubus of our funds is FOOD. And like me, most of you are on the Foraging for Other sources Of food Diet. Hence, the FOOD Diet. You all out there have come up with a rather unique list of food combinations that doesn't break the bank, but puts a little substance in your stomach. One of the major sources for inexpensive food, thankfully so, is the dollar store. I don't mean the ones that say they are, but stuff cost more then a $1. I mean, real, $1 everything only stores.

This blog is aimed to gather all your favorite meals bought solely at $1 stores. Eventually, as the list gets quite plentiful, a book will be published to share these treasures with all the sustenance deprived onlookers who drool at the thought of a juicy beef hamburger, but who will settle for a dressed up bowl of beef Ramen noodles. Whether you are a student, artist, homeless, or the like, you will be able to make use of t his!

I will be posting new meals as I prepare them, for your use, and culinary enjoyment! Please reply with any and all meals that you have enjoyed!
