Fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, and some diced tofu heated in olive oil with some (preferably fresh) basil and oregano and then served over spaghetti.

cheesetoast must be the cheapest thing around

pasta with panna (the fat white cream) & onion & slices of ham. if there´s any money left, add mushrooms. (edit: and parmigiano)

Inspired by this thread I made a couple of loaves of potato bread last night. I had a slice today for breakfast and I must say it's pretty damned good.

A box of Mac and Cheese can run you a whopping to 79 cents.

You should ltop it off with some home made jam!

I love this thread, it's full of really good meal ideas.

Ramen noodles are actually one of my favorite things to eat. My boyfriend can't stand them, he thinks they are horrible and even hates the smell, so I can't make them for myself when he's around. If I get an evening alone where I'm only cooking for myself, I often go for Ramen noodles.

For about $10, you can buy a pound of dried pinto beans, a dozen flour tortillas, a dozen eggs and a pound of russet potatoes. Once you cook the beans, you can probably get 2 or 3 dinners and breakfasts from this. You can eat the beans whole one night, with fried potatoes and tortillas, mash up and refry some of the beans and make bean and potato burritos and make breakfast burritos with beans, scrambled eggs and potatoes.

For a few dollars more, you can add some kielbasa or smoked sausage to the fried potatoes for dinner and have enough left over to serve on the side with fried eggs for breakfast.
