They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money.

Pasta Sardines

Today is a lazy day for me. Due to the extreme heat outside I'd rather spend the day at home doing a little "me time". Since I am too lazy to cook for our dinner, I thought of a meal which only takes few minutes to cook and prepare. Aside from being easy to prepare it is also a budget meal since all of the ingredients cost only more or less than php50. It's a simple lazy meal with a twist.

I used the merienda pack of Del Monte Spaghetti in this recipe which costs only php20. Because we are a small family opt to use smaller amount food packaging. A can of tomato sardines which costs php10 or more and the usual spices onion and garlic. Cheese is optional if you like to add a little color to your pasta. 
(pardon for the poor quality of photo used only a phone cam)


Ingredients:
  • Del Monte merienda pack Spaghetti
  • 1 small can tomato sardines
  • salt to tase
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • grated cheese
  • Lemon to taste (optional)
Procedure:
  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  • Saute the garlic and onion into olive oil and add the sardines. Drain the pasta and mix it with the sardines. Stir the pasta with the sardines to allow the absorption of the flavors. 
  • Serve and top with cheese and squeeze a lemon to taste.
Feel free to try my recipe. How about you? What's your lazy meal?

Till next.
