All “Din for $10” meals and entrees cost $10 or less to make (Assuming that you have a few staple herbs and seasonings), and all recipes make enough to feed a family of 4 or 5.
This simple meal cost me exactly $9.88 to make. All of my ingredients were purchased at my local Walmart, and fed my family of 5, with leftovers.
Penne Noodles $1.00
Alfredo Sauce (22oz.) $2.58
Frozen Broccoli $1.92
Frozen Shrimp $4.38
The cost of fresh broccoli (Which I actually prefer) was actually still in budget to buy, but my store was actually restocking their produce so I settled for the next best thing. No problem though! Dinner still turned out just fine.
In a few easy steps, start with boiling your pasta noodles of choice. I used penne noodles just because it’s always easier for my kids to eat. Drain and cool.
In another pan, cook your shrimp and season to taste (Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder) and add in your frozen broccoli to cook thoroughly.
Add your shrimp, broccoli, and cooled pasta to a large pot. Add in your jar of alfredo sauce, and give time for your ingredients to soak up their flavors.
Season your finished dish to taste.
