June 26, 2013



I've been skint and bulk bought those cheap pasta sauces before- my top tip to render them edible(!) for just a few pence more is to add a crushed clove of garlic and a pinch of herbs, or chilli flakes for arrabiata style sauce.

Another favourite was Sainsbury's 11p noodles and a handful of value range peanuts.

Best of luck with this, I'm enjoying reading your updates and I think I'll try out your value burger recipe soon :)

Kristen thanks for your comment and your donation - much appreciated! And the tips on improving the sauce, too :) I have two portions left, so I shall add a sprinkle of chilli flakes I think! The only meal I'm looking forward to eating again is the bean burgers though!

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
