Meals Using Deals takes Cuckoo deals each week and makes a dinner for under $10 for a family of 4. We use whichever store has the best deals out of: Walmart, Target, Kroger/Smiths, or Maceys. I will try to post several during the week.

This meal will look similar to the one above, but you can choose the pasta type since many are on sale!

Old Fashioned Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Ingredients (bought at Kroger using the Kroger Deals List (Columbus Region) this week – deals at other Kroger’s/Smith’s should be similar, but I also have another Meals Using Deals post coming later from the Kroger Mid-Atlantic region too)

  • Rotel Crushed Tomatoes ($1)
  • -or- Hunt’s Crushed tomatoes ($1)
  • Kroger Pasta (free wyb 3 Hunt’s tomatoes)
  • 1 pound Ground Beef ($1 off wyb 3 Rotel Tomatoes) (about $2-4)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup parsley (about .89 a bunch – freeze the rest for another recipe)
  • Salt, Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Oregano
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Saute onions in medium saucepan until they are translucent. Add ground beef. In the meantime, boil water for pasta and cook according to box directions. After beef is brown and all juices have evaporated, add parsley and the rest of the spices. Add 1 8oz can of crushed tomatoes. (If can is bigger than 8 oz, freeze the rest for another day!) Stir all ingredients and cover on low heat for 20 minutes. Once pasta is done, drain and add to the sauce.

FINAL PRICE: 4-5 servings = about $6-7 (around $1.40 per person)

Deidre’s Note: I love Spaghetti with crushed tomatoes! I also add celery to mine and think it gives it a good crunch.
