How-To Cook on a college budget: Pasta Night

Italian Night! 

Hi! Today is your lucky day because you have a true Italian here who's ready to show you how to cook one of the best pasta dishes! Coming from a huge Italian family, I grew up eating pasta. My mom and my grandma would be in the kitchen for hours and all I did was sit on the couch waiting (impatiently) for what I could smell was a great dinner! I was always asking "Is it ready yet?" then when it was, sprinting to the stove to make my plate.

Being away from home is always so hard especially when it comes to your moms cooking. We are college students who barely have any money and barley any time to cook for ourselves. But we all need a good home cooked meal once in a while right? Well in our blog, you will get just that, but even cheaper! You will find all kinds of recipes that are simple to make and extreamly cheap to buy.

Tonight, I am going to show you the closest meal you'll get to you
r moms "Italian Night." Except it will only take you about 15 minutes to cook. Pasta A La Vodka. A crowd favorite! All you'll have to do is go to Walmart or any super market near you and purchase two items. The first is the pasta (Barilla), which can be anything you prefer whether its spaghetti, springs, bow ties, shells, etc. Then in that same isle, you will find a few different brands of vodka sauce. My personal favorite and the cheapest one is Newman's Own. Then that's it! Next you can go checkout and your total will only be around $4.50! Now head home so we can get to cooking!
