Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~
I do something like this. Use tortelini ( the dried ones with the regular pasta)boil and drain. add broccoli, add about 1/2 jar of alfredo sauce, 1-2 c cooked chicken or turkey. mix together top with cheese and bake. This is great to make a dbl batch of and take to someone that just had a baby, or surgery, or to a church super.
