Stuffed Scallops, Pasta tossed in Garlic and Olive Oil, with a Caesar Salad. This is the quickest, and cheapest dinner, I’ve made in a while. The guys thought I’d worked hard at preparing it. Little did they know that I was relaxing and enjoying the quiet while they were at the pond fishing.
Publix has stuffed scallops in the seafood department. Warm in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 450. Buitoni pasta was BOGO this past week. I always grab these when they are on sale. It cooks in 3 minutes, taste great, and so many ways to serve pasta.
After the pasta is cooked and drained, toss in a couple tablespoons of melted better, fresh garlic, olive oil, and parsley.(I like to add parsley to lots of my dishes. Adds some color and adds a fresh taste.)
Served with a small Caesar Salad, and a Red Lobater biscuit, made our fancy dinner complete!
- Stuffed Scallops $1.25 each
- Pasta BOGO at $2.29 each ($1.15)
- Biscuits BOGO at $2.49 per box (makes 12) ($.83)
Total $5.73 for a family of 3. You can easily keep the cost of this meal under $10 even for a family of 6.
Stay tuned for the continued post of ‘Cooking for the Freezer’. If you missed the first one earlier in the week, click here.
I’m also working on a post for another quick and easy fancy dinner.
Look forward to you visiting soon.
