I have to say, other than saving a boat-load of cash, trying new foods has to be the best part of being a couponer! I have shared other recipes in the past including Chicken a la Coupons and my son's favorite weekend breakfast. Tonight was another night of inspiration!
I started with some al fresco Chicken Sausage, the Roasted Pepper Asiago flavor. I got this at Shaw's a few weeks ago:
Sale Price $3.99
Used $1/1 al fresco Chicken Sausage from 5/6 SS
This happened to be on sale during the recent Dollar Doubler week, so I used one of those
Final Price $1.99
I sliced the sausage into bite-sized pieces and browned. I added a little diced garlic, which I have to admit I use in just about every recipe.
Once that wonderful smell filled my kitchen, I poured in a can of Hunt's tomatoes with Spicy Red Pepper, and a Savory Garlic flavored Philadelphia Cooking Cream. The tomatoes I have had on hand for a while, and paid pennies for them. The cooking cream was an item of choice for me during the recent $5 Kraft Savings Promotion at Shaw's for $1.49. If I had them, I would have thrown in some chopped peppers and onions.
I also had about a half cup of fresh mozzarella left from a previous recipe, which I diced up and added, stirring until melted.
You will be shocked to hear what I served this with...FREE Mueller's Pasta, of course!!!
This entire recipe cost me around $4, and fed myself as well as my husband tonight. Plus, we have enough for another meal, that's $1 each per meal...much better than a $50 dinner out!
