Simple {and cheap} gluten free linguini

Hello friends!
Whew! It has been a CRAZY few months of life.  Mostly in regards to our home search!  We began looking more seriously in March and found a place and was under contact.  I began my plans for some minor renovations.  Then the house fell through and I was really bummed.  But less than 24 hours later we had another home (same floor plan- WIN) under contract!  It has been a bit of a bumpy road, but today we finally get to close the chapter of hunting and the waiting process!

If you are reading this after 1 CST, then we are homeowners! If it is before 1, then we are counting down the minutes 😉

As we have been on this hunt, it reminded me of when we first got married (5 years tomorrow!) and how we were on a super strict budget.  Well, we still like to stay on budget, but it is a little more relaxed than those first few months.  I learned the art of getting the most for my money from my mom, and I am very thankful for that skill!  Today I will be sharing with you one of the most simple meals I make that is the most cost efficient but also tastes great and lasts several days!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our frugal finds themed week!
