Total for dinner for two= ONE DOLLAR!
Saute very thinly sliced onions until just BEFORE they brown, just a few crispy edges is good. I use olive oil, which I can get wholesale, but any good vegetable oil or even butter will do.
In a separate pan, lightly saute the veggies, or you can steam them or microwave them to a crisp/tender stage.
Prepare broken up spaghetti as box directs.
When pasta is done, drain and immediately break 1 egg into it, stirring quickly to coat the spaghetti. The heat of the pasta and the pan cooks the egg. Do not do this over heat!
Add the cheese and stir again, making sure that all is well mixed.
Add milk and give a quick stir (milk will absorb and make a nice coating).
Put pasta on plate and lightly heap sauteed onions on top. Put vegetables on plate next to pasta.
A few grinds of black pepper and maybe a little more cheese sprinkled on and you are ready to enjoy.
(This recipe doubles and triples well, can be amended to include bits of cooked meats, fish or veggies, in other words, LEFTOVERS! LOL I have even served it to guests - they loved it))
Dinner for a Dollar! Who can beat that?

I can't wait to try this one. We are also having problems stretching money but then again who isn't?
Thanks for your wonderful idea, have anymore you can share with us or me alone?
Thank you. Paula Jo Carr
Boil up some spaghetti, whilst boiling, fry some chopped garlic in olive oil do not let it colour, beat up some eggs. Drain spaghetti, pour into pan with garlic and olive oil, mix well to coat the spaghetti with oil. Remove from the heat and pour over the beaten eggs and mix well. Season well with ground black pepper and salt. Sprinkle over with chopped fresh coriander (cilantro), optional.
