Easy Pepperoni Pasta Bake
Since my divorce my number two goal, after making sure the kids have everything they need, was to get out of debt, take better care of my finances and to save for the future every single day. With smart decision making, a savings and payoff plan and a determination to run my household finances like I would advise others, I have succeeded! I am debt free, have a nest egg that is slowly growing and am pretty proud of myself on top of it. I have not done it alone, however. I have amazing clients and family that have given me advice and support all along the way. Some of the best advice I have gotten is to use reward cards when purchasing every day things, like the Kroger REWARDS Visa Card. With stellar rewards on products you buy anyway, the card helps you earn savings as well. For instance, when you shop at Kroger for the ingredients for my Easy Pepperoni Pasta Recipe, you can earn savings on gas, groceries and more just by using the Kroger REWARDS Visa Card at check out!
You can save more with the shopping you do everyday on your Kroger REWARDS Visa® The Kroger REWARDS Visa® Card gives you an extra discount on fuel at Kroger Family of Stores fuel centers, AND lets you earn free groceries, every time you use it!*
Using the card is simple. Pull it out for every purchase and watch your points pile up!
Grocery Savings: In addition, when you use your Kroger REWARDS Visa® Card, you earn FREE groceries with rewards checks, sent automatically from Kroger 4 times a year!*
- 1 point for every qualifying net $1 you spend everywhere Visa® is accepted
- 2 points for every qualifying net $1 you spend at Kroger
- 3 points for every qualifying net $1 you spend on Kroger Family of Brands products (i.e. Kroger brand, Simple Truth, Private Selection, PSST)
Every 1000 rewards points earns $5 in free groceries (rewards checks sent quarterly). This can add up to significant savings on your grocery bill! Want to see how much you could save on fuel and groceries with your Kroger REWARDS Visa® Card? Use the calculator to find out!
If you shop and get gas at Kroger, you know that it is often the cheapest place in town! When you add your rewards it gets even cheaper!
Fuel Savings: As a Kroger REWARDS Visa® cardholder, you’ll save an additional 25¢ per gallon of fuel for one year, each time you redeem 100 Fuel Points.** This is a fantastic savings for one full year— if you fill up your car weekly, you can see significant savings per gallon using this card (for the first year).
Now that you have a way to save and earn bonuses back with the Kroger REWARDS Visa Card, let’s talk about this easy recipe that kids will gobble up! I made it all with Kroger Brand products like Simple Truth and Private Selection. I buy the Kroger brand all the time and have never been disappointed with the flavor or the affordable price!
- 2 cup uncooked egg noodles
- 1⁄2 lb lean ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup pepperoni, sliced
- 16 oz pizza sauce
- 4 tbsp milk
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Cook noodles according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown ground beef with onion, garlic. Drain excess fat. Stir in noodles, pepperoni, pizza sauce, and milk and mix well. Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven, top with cheese, and bake for 5 to 10 more minutes until cheese is melted.
This recipe is a fun and interesting way to have a family dinner that everyone will love. I do not know a child who does not love pasta, pepperoni and cheese! So this is a winner all around.
Plus, if you use your Kroger REWARDS Visa Card to buy the ingredients, you earn rewards that will have you saving BIG on everyday items. That can only help all of our financial goals!
