Make two meals on the cheap and on the quick. What could be better?
Cook pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, combine meat, onions, and garlic in large non-stick skillet; cook on medium heat until onions are crisp-tender, stirring frequently, and meat is well-browned. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and dressing. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; place in large serving bowl. Add meat sauce; mix lightly. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Serve 2.
With remaining meat sauce stir in drained kidney beans, salsa, and chili powder. Heat through. Cool completely to put in the freezer for another day or refrigerate overnight for the next meal. Top with shredded cheese when ready to serve.

This is a really great idea and the way we cook most of the time now. These two dishes are both favorites, and show up at least a couple times months around this house.
Thanks for sharing.
