Organic yellow & brown rice pasta - $2.99 - MY ALL TIME FAVORITE
Organic red lentil sedanini $2.99 - needs to be cooked a lot longer than what the label says, about 25-30 minutes
Organic black bean rotini $2.99 - don't overcook because this one gets mushy and makes water starchy

Love this shrimp. It's already peeled, deveined and super yummy. One package gives me two dinners (for 2).
Oven-baked cheese bites $2.79

Masala Simmer Sauce $2.69
I've used this sauce many times to make chicken masala for guests. It's a crowd pleaser plus it's super yummy and so easy. Sautee garlic and chopped onions on a pan with very little oil for 5-10 minutes. Add cubed chicken breast. Sautee for 2 minutes on each side, then add the sauce. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve with a dollop fo greek yogurt & naan bread.
Organic Popping Corn - $2.29
I'm totally obsessed with making homemade (no-oil) popcorn with this corn. One bag yields 14 servings (when using 1/4 cup each time).
Raw Oregon Hazelnuts - $7.99
This was my dessert for the most part when I went gluten-free for a month. These go perfectly with wine, they taste sweet to me, and they are just delicious. Just make sure to use a measuring cup as they are very calorie dense.
Chunky spicy $2.99 - if you like spicy, this guac is the bomb

These are amazing for dessert!!! Strawberries are great, haven't tried bananas but I hear they are great too.
