A tip from Alissa Dicker-Schrieber, cooking teacher at TheKitchenista.com:
Pasta with homemade tomato sauce is one of the tastiest, most convenient and affordable meals you can make. The prep work is quick and simple.
Just boil some water for the pasta, chop up some onion and garlic, open a can of crushed tomatoes and you’re ready to get cooking. Your dinner can be on the table in as little as half an hour.
Appealing any time of the year, pasta is a comfort food staple over the winter, when we’re too cold to do much grocery shopping. It’s also less expensive than take-out food. You can use whole wheat pasta, which provides valuable fiber and nutrients as well as a distinctive nutty flavor.
If you want to add meat, keep a package of sausages in the freezer; thaw and cook in the microwave and garnish your plate of pasta.
All you need to complete your meal is a green salad.
