Tortellini with Ham and Peas
Cost per serving: $1.05
This budget meal dresses up frozen tortellini in a cheesy cream sauce. Use frozen peas, and don’t bother to defrost them―just throw them in the pot with the tortellini 30 seconds before draining. Don’t like peas? Swap in any frozen veggie, such as broccoli florets, asparagus tips or mixed vegetables.
