Homemade split pea soup. Dried peas, some carrots and onions, a bit of salt, and water are what I always start with (and often all I use). Additional spices and items can be added if wanted, but just the basic soup is pretty good. And dirt cheap.

You can get a can of Hunt's or Del Monte spaghetti sauce for less than a dollar (about 82 cents) at WalMart, and a small box of spaghetti noodles for 46 cents.

Or you could get a can of Treet, fry it up and have it with some Macaroni and Cheese ("Kraft Dinner") for under two bucks.

Beans and cornbread, the old southern classic: can of Great Northern beans, about 65 cents, box of Jiffy cornbread mix, about 35 cents.

If you really want something good and quick. Get a jar Bertoli's Mushroom Alfredo sauce for about $2.50 -$3 - over linguini and it can almost pass for the real thing.
throw in some left over chicken or shrimp - and voila!

Chili makes a really good cheap meal, especially if you're feeding a lot of people (or if you want lots of leftovers.) We use canned chili, tomato sauce, elbow noodles, water, and spices (black pepper, of course, and it's good with taco seasoning too.) I like to add cheap American cheese to mine

And spaghetti is of course a good quick, easy, and cheap meal. The noodles cost next to nothing, and depending on your preference, you can find a pretty interesting jarred spaghetti sauce (I like Prego with Italian sausage & garlic.)
