Boil 16 ounces of bowtie pasta (FREE) according to package directions. Meanwhile, thaw 8 ounces of frozen spinach (FREE) in the microwave. Drain pasta and return to pot. Add the spinach, one Italian Cheese & Herb Philly Cooking Creme (FREE), 8 ounces of marinara sauce (est. cost 50 cents), and 4 ounces feta cheese ($1.25). Mix well. Heat through on low. Serve with your favorite bread (50 cents).
Serves four with a gracious plenty leftover.
Cost per serving 56 cents. If all items were purchased at retail price (without sales & coupon match ups, but who would do that?!)and not homemade (the spinach was grown, wilted, & frozen; the marinara was homemade & leftover from pizza night; and the bread was homemade), the cost would have been $2.50 per serving. Still not a bad meal. Throw in a salad and it might even pass for healthy.
