wallet friendly meal....

I think I may have outdone myself.....I hope....The other night I made a meal for the whole family (5) for only $4.33....WOW!  We had parsley & basil Penne pasta topped with Parmesan cheese ~ homemade garlic bread.  The herbs came out of my garden as did the tomatoes & the garlic. Here is a rundown of the prices....
Penne pasta - $1.19
Parmesan block - $2.15
French Bread - $.99

How yummy
does this look??  It was so easy to do & everyone loved it!  You could even mix up the different herbs that you may have in your garden.....I think that Rosemary & even Oregano would be great!  I follow through with my herb butter as well on the garlic bread.  Which is so easy to do.....

Herb Butter:
1 stick unsalted room temp butter
2 T Oregano
2 T Rosemary
2 T Basil
2 T Thyme

You could even mix it up for your liking....just add on the T herb you prefer more with the one you ommitted :)  Enjoy!
