This recipe is easy and quick, and if you have extra vegetables you need to get rid of- you can always add them in. The alphabet pasta makes this soup a little more fun, but if you wanted to cut the cost further you could replace the pasta with rice.

Ingredients- ($3.86 recipe/ $0.48 serving)

6 small Idaho potatoes ($0.83) – I buy potatoes in 5lb. bags, they usually contain smaller potatoes than loose Idaho potatoes, and it saves lots of money.

12 oz. box alphabet pasta ($1.69)

3 carrots ($o.57)

2 bouillon ($0.44)

1 stalk celery ($0.04)

1/2 head garlic ($0.23)

1/2 tbsp. onion powder ($0.06)

salt to taste

1. Peel and dice potatoes, add to a large pot with 12 cups of boiling water. Add in bouillon and minced garlic. 

2. Keep soup over medium high heat for about ten minutes, then turn low. 

3. Add in sliced celery and diced carrots, onion powder. Cover heated for ten minutes. 

4. Heat pot to low boil uncovered, add in alphabet pasta and cook for 10-15 minutes- taste pasta to make sure it is tender before serving.
