Cheap Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce

Cheap Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce
This was a dish I made to ease my poor wallet and keep the kids happy. All the ingrediance are fairly cheep. Mince is about five dollars, spag is a dollar. Canned tomato is about eighty five cents a can. Garlic and onion are only thirty five cents or so. Buy the black and gold or home brands. Get veges from fruit markets and buy in bulk. Every cent counts!!

  • one onion.
  • ⅔ cloves of garlic.
