  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Grease a large casserole dish with butter.
  2. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice each half into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Cook the spinach in a saucepan according to package instructions. Drain and squeeze out excess water. If using leaf spinach, lightly chop the spinach after draining and squeezing it dry.
  4. In a large bowl, combine potato slices and olive oil and toss to coat. Add garlic, oregano, basil, and salt and toss to coat.
  5. In prepared casserole dish, coat bottom with 1/3 of the pasta sauce, 1/3 of the potatoes, 1/3 of the spinach, 1/3 of the Parmesan, and 1/3 of the Mozzarella. Repeat layers 2 more times.
  6. Bake uncovered 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  7. Serve, perfect sides would be a green salad and garlic toast.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I get some frozen spinach, but with the cheese, this is probably a fair cost meal. I will update this after I make it.

Ingredients
For the Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  2. Season chicken with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side, set aside.
  3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Stir in spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes; set aside. If using frozen, just thaw and squeeze out the water.
  4. To make the garlic Parmesan cream sauce, melt butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  5. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, thyme and basil. Cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in cream and Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Place chicken in a single layer into the prepared baking dish. Ass potatoes to the sides and top, then add spinach, and the cream sauce.
  7. Bake until completely cooked through, juices run clear, about 25-30 minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, serve.
Recipe Notes

Six chicken thighs might be near a kilo, about 70 Baht. For the cheese, go with about 150 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about $1.08 per serving.

  1. This is the type of fillets I get from Tesco.
  2. Mix breading ingredients together in large bowl. Whisk egg in a separate bowl.
  3. Heat some olive oil in a non stick skillet on medium heat. Once the pan is ready, dredge the salmon in the egg, then the breading mixture and add to the hot pan, skin side down and let the fillets cook on one side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, flip and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Plate with skin side down, serve with your favorite vegetable or even with pasta.
Recipe Notes

For 69 Baht per fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. High cost but I think ok for a once in a while, healthy meal.
