$10 Dinner Date: Poached Saffron Cod and Cannellini Parsnip Ragut


Yum! This weekend I decided to make a special meal. While I didn’t actually calculate the cost, I’m sure it still came in at under $5 a person- which fits into my $10 dinner date series.

I poached some lovely frozen cod (which I bought at Costco), and I made a gorgeous ragut of stewed tomatoes, cannellini beans, basil, garlic, and parsnips. It was a lovely dinner!

I love elegant and frugal dinners, and this is definitely one that I’ll continue to make- soon I’ll find the best version and post the recipe for all of you!
