College is tough, not just academically but as you know it can be seriously tough financially as well. One place where college students tend to spend a lot of money is food. Face it, we love to eat out, we love our chipotle and delivery pizza, but you’re looking at about $10 a person for either of these options. Then there’s the cafeteria, somehow professors love it, I say eww. I’ve got a few cool, delicious, and super cheap recipe ideas to hit you with. Try them and let us know what you think.
1. Mom’s tomato Mac – serves 4 for less than 2 dollars!!

2. Totino’s Pepperoni Chicken Pizza
