$0.66 per serving ~ Veggies and Kielbasa with Rotini

Veggies and Kielbasa with Rotini ~ $0.66 per serving
1 box uncooked rotini ($1.00)
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces (free, from party leftovers)
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges ($0.30)
2 cups snow peas or sugar snap peas (free, from party leftovers)
1 lb. turkey kielbasa, sliced ($2.00)
1 cup milk ($0.30)
16 oz. processed cheese, cubed ($1.65)

1. Cook penne as directed on package. Drain, cover, and keep warm.
2. Saute vegetables 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain if necessary.
3. Add kielbasa, milk, and cheese. Simmer over low until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth, stirring constantly.
4. Add cooked rotini. Stir gently to coat. Cook a few more minutes until heated through.
Makes 8 servings

The Verdict
I usually use a box of frozen sugar snap peas, but the fresh works just as well. This is my mother-in-law's favorite dinner. I had a ton of leftovers, which is good, as I am going back to work on Monday and we could use all the leftovers as lunches that are easy to transport, heat and enjoy.
