Favorite Lenten Recipes a different perspective

I don't just have "favorite" lenten recipes. Because my cooking is simple lent tends to be a season of "non-favorites" instead. Here are a couple of easy and inexpensive recipes that are Lenten worthy:

Tuna and Noodles
2 cans cream of celery soup
1 can of milk
1 can peas
2 cans of tuna
Cooked noodles for 7

Heat soup, milk, peas and tuna in a sauce pan.
Pour over noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

For a different texture use rice instead of noodles.

Mac and cheese

1 lg block Velveeta cheese
2 cans evaporated milk
Cooked noodles for 7

Heat cheese and milk in a double boiler or microwave until smooth.
Pour over noodles, mix well.

You can add to this depending on taste. Some suggestions are:
Super chunky salsa
Parmesan cheese

Use your imagination...

Remember that part of Lent is to sacrifice to fill the rice bowls at church. These meals, while simple and not the most satisfying will help in that area. They are probably the two most inexpensive meals I make. For our family of 7 these meals cost on average of 1.25 per person.
