Giant Eagle Bargain recipe of the week- Lemon Broccoli Pasta

Bargain Meal of the Week

This week I am trying a meatless dish. It sounds so good to me (and was so simple) that I thought I would try it. I have to say, however that I think some chicken added in would be stellar! Happy Eating!

Check out Stretching a Buck deals here to see more deals at Giant Eagle. I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.
