Yesterday's recipes:

Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad with a Lemon Basil Almond Pesto:

*I boiled some wheat Great Value spaghetti noodles, and also cooked a bag of frozen veggies (Great Value also) with a tiny bit of vegetable oil in another pan. I then used the pesto shown below, and the red wine vinegar and mixed it with the veggies and also dumped the pasta in as well.

This meal made a lot, was very easy, and budget friendly (we already had everything except for the pesto, which was around $2.00 I believe)
Only downside-the pesto in the meal isn't very healthy!
Braised Green Beans with Garlic, Tomatoes, Olives, and Capers
Excellent way to cook green beans! We had everything except for the green beans and diced tomatoes. Overall, still fairly inexpensive, pretty healthy, and tasted SOO good :)
