The following is a small collection of some of my cheap pasta recipe’s which are a must for anyone on a budget.

I have found they are loved by children and adults alike.

Basic Pasta Sauce
1 Medium Onion Diced
1 Clove Garlic Diced
1 Can Chopped Tomatoes / Pasata Sauce
Good Pinch Oregano

Sautee the onion and garlic until soft add the tomatoes and oregano. Depending on your tastes you can modify this recipe. I also add diced carrots, celery, green and red peppers (capsicums) and mushrooms and for the non vegetarians bacon pieces. Therefore insuring a good supply of vegetables. It helps to make a large batch then you can freeze it until required. I find plastic drinking cups covered with plastic wrap great as you use 1 for a couple of people or more depending on the amount of people you are cooking for.
