Trying to offset rising grocery prices Week 1: Skillet Spaghetti

Friday's Dinner -- Skillet Spaghetti. Thanks to Marcia @ for this recipe. It was much better (and easier) than just plain spaghetti topped with sauce. My little girls loved it, and my picky eater ate two big plates! It's also perfect fuel for my 13 mile run tomorrow! This will definitely be going into regular rotation in our house.

Here is a link to the original recipe:
I tweaked it a little bit...I didn't have any artichokes

Skillet Spaghetti
2 teaspoons olive oil (.10)
1 onion, diced (.40)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (.10)
28 ounce jar spaghetti sauce (1.50)
1 pound spaghetti (1.00)
handful of chopped sun dried tomatoes (optional) (.75)
3 cups water

Served with green salad (1.25)
Heat olive oil in skillet and add onion. Cook over medium-high heat until begins to brown. Add garlic and cook about 30 seconds. Add pasta, sauce and water. Cover and bring to boil.  Cover, lower heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Toss in sun dried tomatoes during last few minutes.

Makes six servings.
Cost per serving: $0.85!
