Meals for Less
Cooking on a budget doesn’t have to mean bland or boring meals. Save money and keep your taste buds (and wallet) happy with our budget-friendly entrees. Each serving of these healthful meals costs less than $4 — and most less than $3 or $2! (Prices used are from grocery stores in Des Moines, Iowa.)

Hearty Chicken and Bean Casserole
Cooking your own dried beans rather than using canned saves you money and loads of sodium. Cook a large batch and refrigerate or freeze leftovers for another use so you only have to invest time once.

Super-cheap price: $1.73/serving

Baked Ratatouille-Sausage Penne
In the mood for Italian? Try this budget-friendly, low-fat sausage-and-eggplant one-dish meal.

Super-cheap price: $1.52/serving

Turkey Reuben
Save money and eat well with this tasty turkey and coleslaw sandwich. We made this sandwich healthier by using reduced-calorie Thousand Island salad dressing and swapping turkey and lightly dressed coleslaw for corned beef and sauerkraut.

Super-cheap price: $2.28/serving
