This is a great meal that can even be made ahead and frozen. I made a couple of changes to keep it under $5 but it's still delicious. Instead of running to the store to get the exact ingredients I used what I had on hand. It just goes to show how you can tweak something a little bit to save money on your grocery bill. The changes that I made are in parenthesis.

As you can see with just a few tweaks I saved $2.25.
Most recipes can handle a few changes here and there. Before you run to the store (and spend even more money on gas) look in your fridge and see what you can do with a little creativity. Who knows it may even turn out better.
