Menu Monday!

Are you looking for a Yummy way to put all of that FREE Pasta and Philadelphia Cooking Creme we bought last week at Kroger to good use?  Here's a great way...

This was tonight's dinner and it was SO Good!  The recipe came off the top of the Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme.  It was very simple and easy and very Frugal.  The cost of this meal was about $5!  Pretty great to feed your whole family and even have left overs for around 5 bucks!  Here's the recipe:
Baked Penne
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 container Italian Cheese and Herb Philly Cooking Creme
1/4 c each onion and green pepper
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce
1 cup of Mozzarella Cheese (I actually used the whole bag, we LOVE cheese)
3 cups cooked penne pasta

Heat oven to 350.  Brown meat with onions and peppers in large skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce, 3/4 c cooking creme and 1/2 c mozzarella; cook and stir 2-3 minutes.  Add pasta, mix lightly.  Spoon into a 2 qt casserole; top with remaining cooking creme and mozzarella. Cover.  Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through, uncovering after 15 minutes.  YUMMY!!!

So you know what I had tonight.  Here's a look at the upcoming week's menu:

Tuesday: Chicken strips, potatoes and corn
Wednesday:  Country Style Ribs, Pinto Beans, Corn Bread and Potatoes
Thursday:  Left overs :)
Friday:  Tacos, rice, beans and homemade chips :)

Your turn, what's for dinner this week?
