Here’s an easy weeknight meal using items that you will find on sale at Shaws starting 4/15 (along with some pantry staples).
Turkey Bolognese with Penne
1lb Jennie-O Ground Turkey ($1.13/lb – Here’s the Deal)
1 small onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14.5 oz) DelMonte diced tomatoes ($1.00 starting 4/15)
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 tsp each dried parsley, oregano, basil (use 1 tbsp each if using fresh herbs)
1/2 tsp each salt, sugar, black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 box Barilla Pronto Penne Pasta, prepared (FREE – Here’s the Deal)
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic and cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Increase heat to medium-high. Add turkey and cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes while stirring to crumble.
Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and seasonings and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
Stir in prepared pasta and cook an additional 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
I like to top it with a little shaved Parmesan when I serve but that is optional.
Assuming you have most of these items in your pantry, you’ll only need to buy the Ground Turkey, Diced Tomatoes, and Barilla Penne (although you may already have these items in your stockpile) for a total of $2.13 or .53/per serving.
Add a Fresh Express Salad Blend Side Salad ($1.13 – Here’s the Deal) dressed from your stockpile and you’ve served your family of 4 for $3.26 or .82/serving
