One of the best ways of making sure a recipe will be economical is to use ingredients that are in season. These are usually easy to find and are almost always on sale. And to top it all off, they’re in season which means they’re at their peak in taste. The most delicious ingredients are always the seasonal ones.
If you are looking for an easy and cheap dinner recipe, I recommended starting there. This dish, for example, makes great use of the pumpkins that are in season this time of year. Another economical ingredient that everyone loves is pasta, so combining these two ingredients will result in a delicious dinner that won’t cost you too much energy or money.
