Pinching Pennies? Make it a Pasta night! 

Pasta is a budget-friendly way to choose whole grain. Cooking Matters has created an easy to follow guide for creating pasta dishes that are low cost and filled with creative options. Choose ingredients from the Cooking Matters Pasta Dinner chart to make a meal for four. Then, follow the step-by-step directions and review the chef ’s notes. 

New to whole grain pasta? Start with a whole grain blend. Once you are used to the taste, switch to 100% whole wheat pasta. When selecting a meat to add to your pasta dish, use ground meat that is 93% lean or leaner. Drain excess fat from meat after cooking and before adding it to your pasta meal. 

Try out different sauces for your pasta dishes. This is a great way to experiment with different flavors and to create delicious meals with minimal options.
