If you're broke and money is too tight to buy food, I have a great recipe for you. Take some dry pasta, preferably egg noodles, but whatever you have on hand should work fine. Cook your serving until it is al dente, drain pasta and return to pan. Stir in approximately a tablespoon of butter or margarine. Use more or less to suit your tastes. This is buttered noodles. Serve in a bowl and salt to taste. Enjoy a low cost meal prepared in minutes.

This recipe came about because it was the day before pay day and I had almost nothing in the fridge or pantry. I had put myself on an enforce pantry challenge, to use up what I had.

I had 10 eggs, a few veggies and one packet of 2 minute noodles in the pantry.

I cooked the noodles but didn't put the flavouring in with the noodles. I kept it aside. I divided the noodles into 5 equal portions. I added equal amounts of chopped veggies to those portions.

In a bowl whisk 2 eggs together with a little water. Into this put the noodles and veggies and a little of the seasoning from the packet. Just enough to give it a little flavour. There should be enough in the packet for 5 omelets.


In a non-stick fry pan (or omelet pan) melt a little butter. Pour egg mix into heated pan. As egg mix cooks, lift up edges and tip pan to allow the uncooked egg on top to flow under the cooked egg mix.

If you have an omelet pan it's pretty easy to cook both sides. However, if you're like me, you may not have the luxury of this.

What I do is wait until I can see the bottom is starting to cook, then I put a plate on top of the pan, and take it off the heat and invert the pan. The omelet is now on the plate. I then lift the pan and slide the omelet off the plate back onto the pan again to cook further.

Omelet is done when bottom is browned and edges are set. My girls loved the fact that there were noodles in the omelet and it was more filling. Plus they got their serve of vegetables and they didn't even realize it.

Hope this helps

When I boil noodles for something I always boil the whole package since I spent the time boiling the water. Then I use the noodles I need and I freeze the rest of the noodles in a freezer bag that I have pushed the air out of. Then the next time I need noodles I just plop the frozen noodles in hot water and in 2-3 minutes I have done noodles. I have given most of my co-workers this tip and they love it!

Easy and Delicious


*Reserve about 1 cup of pasta cooking liquid which will create the beautiful light sauce


Preparation: First, set oven to 400 degrees F. Place foil on a lined cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and season to taste, salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc. Roast broccoli for about 15-20 until desired doneness is reached.

Then, in a sauce pan, saute the onion until translucent. Add garlic and saute for about 5 minutes until garlic is fragrant. Deglaze pan with white wine. Simmer mixture for about 10 minutes. Then add reserved pasta cooking water and simmer on low heat. Add handful of frozen peas and mix to combine. Remove sauce from heat and place on back burner.


In a large bowl, add the drained noodles with sauce mixture. To serve, plate the lasagna mixture on the bottom of the plate, set the roasted broccoli on top then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

Boil noodles in pan until soft. Drain and leave in pan. Dump everything else in and mix until blended. Leave on stove on low temp to warm. The chips give you a little bit of salt to taste.

This is a thrifty recipe that my sister came up with when she had several children that she watched in her home daycare. It can be spiced up quite a bit for the adult version, or left as is for picky children

You didn't say what sort of noodles you have, but this is one of my daughter's favorites: I make 2 cans of tomato soup (with milk) and add a package of steamed mixed veggies and egg noodles. She gobbles it up every time!

I cook the noodles, sometimes add a can of mushrooms and a pound of ground beef and stir in a can of condensed mushroom soup. Don't add any water, just add the can in it's condensed form. If it's too thick when you get it all stirred up, add a half can of milk or water. Works with any noodle I've used so far, but I usually use wide egg noodles.

This is yummy!

1 can of cream soup (I use cream chicken)
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup parmesan
1 cup frozen veggies (I use mixed veggies)
2 cups of cooked noodles
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I use whatever I have on hand)
seasoning- black pepper, salt, garlic ect.

Mix everything, but the cheddar cheese.
bake at 400 for about 25 minutes or warmed through stir and top with cheddar cheese ( I let sit in oven until cheese melts)

For the meat lovers, you can add about 2 cups of cubed chicken ect. In the past I've used leftover porkchops.

You can add whatever fits your taste.
This receipe is very easy and most of the ingredients you can "eyeball"
Enjoy! mvb
