I think this is a good way to stretch a buck. It makes a big casserole pan and leftovers can be frozen. I usually save those in freezer bags for when Im not home this way I know my husband has a healthy and home cooked meal.

2
In another pot add water for your spaghetti. While waiting for water to come to a boil break spaghetti into 1 inch pieces. Cook pasta according to package and drain when pasta is cooked add some butter. (I put the spaghetti into the baking dish Im going to use . This way I can sautee the veggies in the same pot I just cooked the spaghetti in and saves on clean up) You can salt your pasta water...
