Spaghetti Amatriciana

Here's a shout out to my old buddy Marco from Rome. He used to make this for us occasionally.

Spaghetti Amatriciana
8 oz whole wheat spaghetti: 0.65
1 T. olive oil: 0.11
1 onion, diced: 0.60
4 oz diced ham, Canadian bacon, or proscuitto: 1.09
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 c. canned tomatoes, chopped: 0.56
pepper to taste
Total: $3.01 for 4 servings, or $0.75 per serving.

Cook spaghetti to al dente.

Heat oil in nonstick skillet. Saute onion until almost brown. Add ham and continue to saute until ham is browning. Stir in red pepper flakes and tomatoes. Toss with cooked spaghetti. Season with pepper

I made a version of this tonight (chicken instead of ham) and it is really tasty!
