Today's dinner is simple, very cheap and one of my favorites.
Gnocchi (Italian potato dumpling) in marinara sauce with garlic wheat toast
The bags of gnocchi were from save-a-lot for $1.00 each (used 2 bags for 4 people)
marinara sauce (3 small cans of tomato sauce from save-a-lot 3/$1)
I added my own spices to create a marinara sauce. I used: fresh crushed red pepper, garlic powder, basil, oregano, onion & fresh ground black pepper
1/2 bag of wheat bread to toast & butter (bread purchased at bread store for $0.79)
Total cost of gnocchi in marinara with toasted garlic wheat for 4 - $3.40
