7 Meals for Under $60
I posted an Aldi Meal Plan for large families a while ago and since it proved to be quite popular, I decided to put another one together. As with the other meal plan, I provide 7 meals. If you don’t use all the meals for supper, you can always save some of the easier ones and use them for lunch ideas. You can download the plan below. It includes a grocery list, helpful tips, and the recipes.
Disclaimer: The term “large family” can mean different things to different people. We have seven people in our family (including three teen boys and a tween) and I actually don’t feel like a large family, but I know that to many we would be considered one. Now, if you have 14 in your family, we’re going to seem small to you.
Aldi Meal Plan Menu
The following recipes are included in the meal plan. You can buy all the ingredients needed for under $60.
Cheesy Sausage & Spinach Pasta
I discovered this recipe a while ago and now make it all the time. It comes together really quickly. The spinach in there makes me feel better about the pasta.
Italian Sausage Vegetable Bake
This is a rather new recipe for us. I love how easy it is to make. It’s also very versatile. You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Just chop them up, place them on a pan with the Italian Sausage, and soon you have a healthy dinner everyone loves. The only problem is making enough.
Stuffed Pepper Casserole
This mixes up really quickly, especially if you have pre-fried hamburger and already cooked rice. It’s a lot easier than making stuffed green peppers the traditional way.
Tater Tot Casserole
This is an old favorite– and sure to please the kids.
One Pot Goulash
Goulash can be made a lot of different ways. This is a simple recipe with not too many ingredients. If the hamburger is already fried, it’s a super quick meal.
African Peanut Stew
My child love this dish. Maybe it’s because we lived in West Africa when our children were little. I love it because you can add all sorts of healthy ingredients– onions, garlic, leafy greens. And you can use any kind of protein you have around– in this case it’s peanut butter, but chicken would be great in here, too. My children never fail to comment how good it smells when I’m making this.
Refried Bean & Cheese Quesadillas
These are so simple and quick to make. They’re a big hit around here.

I used my Master Aldi Grocery Price List to come up with this meal plan.
