Tonight's dinner was basicallly a homemade Hamburger Helper. The cost actually turned out to be lower than Hamburger Helper, and I was able to decrease the amount of sodium. This recipe was found on Spark People's Recipe Website. I like to use their recipes, because they include the nutrition information along with the ingredients and directions.
Skillet Lasagna (Makes 6 1-cup servings) with fresh veggies and ranch dressing
The cost: $1.21 for everything pictured above
The calories: 556 - a bit high, but delicious. :)
Please note the the cost will be somewhat higher next time I make this. I had ground beef, tomatoes, and eggs on hand that my mother-in-law had given to me, so they are not included in the price.
