Cheap and Easy!

Yep, thats what I said, Cheap and Easy.. Now for those of you who have a depraved wonderful mind like my own, get it out of the gutter.. Im talking food people.. food!!

Mr L. loves Manwich but I get tired of the same old Manwich (Sloppy Joe's) sandwiches so tonight I made a can of Manwich Mix and a pound of turkey chopmeat stretch father and not only was it cheap an easy, Mr L. loved it so much he asked me to take his plate away before he ate so much of it he wouldn't be able to get up!..That also means.. Leftoverrrrrs! :)

All you need is one can of Manwhich Mix, whichever one you prefer.
Then you brown your meat in a pan and add in the Manwich mix to heat
Cook up yourself some Pasta.. Any kind. It's totally up to you!
And then bake some french fries..Now I wouldn't normally serve both fries and pasta together but, Mr L. requested it so he got it..
Pour your meat and Manwich mix over everything and Wah-lah! A yummy delicious dinner for pennies on the dollar..
Do you have any cheap and easy meals you make? If so, please share them in the comments for everyone :)


  1. Hi Robyn! I love this too and think it look so good over the pasta! I usually think of serving on a bun but like the idea of using a favorite pasta.

  2. It is not on our diet , but looks so yummy. We were at some restaurant this past month (I don't remember where) and they served a dish like this with the fries and the meat sauce and then covered it all with Cheese! (it was at a fast food place as we were driving somewhere...I normally am good and have a salad or just a plain baked potato with ketsup ;-) at the fast food places , lol.

  3. oh yes, and not only did they put cheese over it they also added sour cream (yup....I call it heart attack food! ha! But it would be nice to have once in a blue moon ;-)

  4. Here in Canada we can't get that, but oh am I craving it now, lol. Really fries, pasta, and sloppy joes, sounds so good, and so bad for us ha too bad.

  5. Hi Robyn! I have never used Manwich before. But I always liked the commercials.
    I would love to hear more about your chickens! I love having chickens!
    I had a Llaso Apso too.

  6. Ha ha ha... laughing at Nannykim's comments... she cracks me up.

    Now, because it's Turkey ...I would do this meal. We've not eaten red meat in a while, last week I had Spaghetti made with Beef... and well, it sure didn't agree with us. For us, it's Turkey or Venison...mmmm!

    this actually sounds good with pasta.
    I'll try this next time!

    Thanks for stopping by Corn, I love reading your comments! Pat

  7. Hi there, This looks like a great meal. I will have to give it a try but somehow using gluten free noodles can change the whole taste.

  8. Thank you everyone for the comments.. Pat I don't really "allow" ground beef in my house..LOL.. Every once in a while which is rare I will break down and but some for my husband but 99% of the time it's turkey chopmeat. If seasoned right you cant tell the difference.. Noreen, I am also gluten free but with the manwich sauce you really can't tell the difference.. I hope you enjoy it :)
    Thank you everyone for stopping by and saying hello! :)

  9. That is totally a man meal Robyn! My son would love it...but I would have to make him eat some vegetables too! Have a wonderful weekend! Angie xo
