Creamy Pesto Mac with Spinach Recipe
“Pesto is definitely an expensive ingredient, but it’s so potent that you really don’t need a lot to add big flavor to your recipes. The little jar I bought contains about 3/4 cup pesto and cost $3.99. I’ve used about 1/4 cup in each recipe so far, but if you can’t find uses for your leftovers immediately, pesto can be frozen. A lot of people like to spoon it into ice cube trays so they can grab a couple tablespoons at a time to toss into recipes like pasta, salad dressings, and other sauces.”
At $0.68 per serving, this recipe gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Pair this with some Crockpot Smothered Pork Chops that you found on sale, and eating in won’t seem like a punishment when you realize how much money you’re saving. Share with your kids how much money you’re saving, and get them excited about it, too. Maybe with all the money you save as a family, you could save up for a special family day out somewhere. My kids are always up for a challenge like that.
