The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Skillet beef & pasta

Who needs Hamburger Helper? Not me. Not you either! This meal takes about 5 minutes to throw together and then you can let it do it’s own thing.

What you’ll need:

3/4 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 can tomato soup
1/4 cup water
1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
2 1/4 cups corkscrew-shaped pasta (rotini), cooked without salt and drained
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook the beef, onion and Italian seasoning in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Drain and return to pan. Stir the soup, water and corn into the skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the corn is tender. Stir in the pasta cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Top with parmesan. Feeds 6.

ground beef – $2.00/lb
onion – $1.12
Italian seasoning – $2.89
condensed tomato soup – $0.89
corn – $1.99
rotini pasta – $1.49
