One of my favorite comfort foods, something me and my mom used to always eat together! And the boyfriends gone at work and it’s raining and windy here so it’s the perfect meal for dinner tonight and beyond cheap.
1 can of while peeled tomatoes – $0.75
And I only used about a cup of noodles maybe a little more from a big box of noodles, the big box was $3-4. So I maybe used $0.50 if that of the box.
Cook noodles, drain, put back in the pot, open can of tomatoes and I tear them into bite size pieces and pour the tomato juice from the can on top, and add salt and a lot of pepper! So good!
