Frugal Recipes to Beat the Budget Blues- Part 1

I'm pretty amazed that I've actually done a cooking post at this point in my pregnancy. As anyone who's battled morning sickness can imagine, that the kitchen and I aren't exactly the best of friends at the moment. All those aromas that foodies love can have a decidedly negative effect on me these days!

Anyway, here in Australia, the economy, food and fuel prices are just about all we are hearing about at the moment, and while the Lord graciously provides for us on a very low income, frugality and good stewardship go hand in hand, and I like to share over a few posts, some very easy recipes to help beat the budget blues.

One of the easiest ways to cut costs on the weekly menu, is to incorporate at least one meatless meal per week. If you find that too boring, then consider trying these as a side dish to stretch your meal further.

Here's a very simple Italian Vegetarian Pasta dish our children love.

1. Boil as many small pasta shapes as you'll need for your family. I like tiny shells, but anything in the pantry will do.

2. Fry up some diced onion & chopped tomato with parsley and basil to taste.

3. Drain cooked pasta and add to frypan, until heated and mixed through nicely, and that's it!!!
