I tried this recipe today and it looks delicious! I have not tried it yet but I will soon. Just wanted to share it with you. You should check out the website! Its great.

6 large potatoes (about 3 lbs) ($.99) 10 lb potato bags are $2.97 this week!
3/4 lb ground beef ($.76) Bought a value pack that was marked down (LINK)
1/2 onion ($.20)
1 zucchini ($.79) Rolled back this week!
1 tsp garlic powder ($.03)
1 15 oz can of diced or crushed tomatoes (or tomato sauce) ($.24) Used $1 off coupon
1 Tbsp brown sugar ($.03)
1/2 tsp salt
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup) ($1.10)
2 cups frozen corn ($.75 ) Did you know that March is "frozen food month"? Lots of frozen veggies on sale these days, so stock up!

1. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Boil about 6-8 minutes until soft. Drain and pat dry.

2. In skillet, brown ground beef with chopped onion and diced zucchini. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper while browning. Drain.

3. In a medium bowl, combine diced tomatoes with brown sugar, salt and shredded cheese. Mix well. ( I did not have brown sugar so I added mushrooms!)

4. In 8x8 baking dish, layer sliced potatoes, meat mixture, potatoes, meat mixture, until all used up. Pour tomato/cheese sauce over the top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

5. Prepare frozen corn as directed on the package.
6. Serve Meat and Potato Lasagna with side of corn!

Also this is a super yummy recipe and its so easy. Strawberries & Cream. All you need is strawberry's, "media crema" (found in hispanic food aisle) or whip cream and Splenda! Mix all together and enjoy!
