So today I looked and thought I have nothing in, how wrong I was. I made a perfectly nice meal from things I had just lying around the kitchen. It was very yummy. I think the chilli flakes really give it a kick. The sardines have a big kick to them.
Ingredients Makes 2 – Apparently.
Spaghetti – 200-250g
Tin of sardines – 88g drained
Garlic 2-3 bulbs
1tsp Chilli Flakes
1tbsp oil / flora
A pinch of pepper
The tin of sardines cost about 60p and could have stretched to 3 meals but hey. The pasta was 28p for 500g so 11.2p for 200g. I cooked the pasta, then in a separate pan heated the oil and garlic, then added the sardines and other spices, mixed together and let heat through for a couple of minutes. Drain the pasta once cooked and mix them together. Sorted. Takes no longer than cooking the pasta and mixing it all together. And if I argue that the spices cost no less than 10p then this lunch cost 81.2p then per person it costs 40.6p each.
Realistically this meal would have been better suited for a dinner meal as I still have lots left over. So in my living below the line week if I get lunch and breakfast for less than 59.4p then it will work out quite nicely. Sorted.
