Hi everyone

Has anyone else tried this pasta sauce from Aldi's? Only 18p a jar.I thought i would try it out and use instead of tinned tomatoes at 31p a tin. So two jars of sauce instead of two tins tomatoes, one large pack of mince, onion, mushrooms, carrots and green pepper ( had one lurking in the fridge). Added extra garlic, oregano and tomatoe puree  and crushed pepper corns for added taste. then into the slow cooker for 3 hours. I have to say it smelt wonderful.

Now all in trays (recycled of course) ready for the freezer. I got 4 good 2 person portions.

I costed this out and it comes to less than 50p per one person portion. Not too bad. could have been less if I had used more veg to stretch it further but I have to think of O/H who does like his meat.
See you all soon. Best wishes wannabe frugal.
