tenDollar dinner for two.

Recently I made a dinner for my bestFriend and I for our movie night that cost less than $10.00.
It fed the both of us AND I had enough for lunch the next day.
I posted a photo of it up on instagram and got a lot of positive feedback along with a lot of people asking for the recipe, so I decided to just post it  up for everyone.

There’s no official name for this dish; it’s a bowtie pasta tossed in olive oil with basil, diced tomatoes, garlic, and sausage (which is optional if you go the veggie route–just as good btw). The prep is super easy, the cooking is super easy (you’re basically throwing everything in a pan and just mixing), and it requires very little time overall to make.

Pasta tossed in extra virgin olive oil w/ garlic, diced tomatos, basil, and sausage. Perfect dinner–perfect lunch.

So to keep myself busy and my mind off being without my daddy (as I am a daddy’s girl)–my manfriend and I enjoyed a day of laziness and¬†frolicking around town for some fun stuff.
