Tip of the Week - May 1

You can whip up flavorful, frugal fare for your family with a little creativity and not a lot of know-how. One of my family's monthly staples is something we call "Ziti con Salsa Aurora." That fancy moniker is a completely made up name for a simple, yet delicious dish we first enjoyed in Florence. The cost for this quick and easy meal that serves four adults (or my family of two adults and three Littles) is around $6. Add some homemade bread and a salad and you have an Italian feast without breaking the bank!
