Budget Turkey Tetrazzini

My riff on Cooking Light's recipe, reflecting what was in my pantry and personal taste (peas--ick!).


Cost breakdown:

$0.20 mushrooms
$0.65 pasta
$0.37 milk
$0.16 green beans
$0.71 2 triangles of name brand spreadable swiss cheese
$1.00 zucchini
$0.30 neufchatel
$0.30 flaxseed tortilla chips
Unknown--3 or so tablespoons of rally old peccorino-romano cheese; 1 onion (bagged); 3 tablespoons of flour; leftover Thanksgiving turkey free courtesy of my friend Deb, who received it at her grocery store but uses an organic turkey for her family and didn't want it (which was wonderful since I was laid off days before Thanksgiving); dash of ground thyme.

I estimate the six servings of this dish total approximately $4. Living beautifully on a budget, indeed. Feeling super virtuous and thrifty right now. Go me.
