Introducing my Dollar Tree Gourmet Series! Starting off with Creamy Jambalaya Pasta!
A Quick and Easy Creamy Jambalaya Pasta Recipe!
As many of you know, I am a bargain queen. I love saving money on my groceries, whenever possible. Lately, I’ve been buying a lot of my basic groceries from the Dollar Tree, and I’ve been saving a ton by doing so. Depending on which location, and what time I go to the Dollar Tree, I’m able to buy a ton of goodies. I buy everything from
- Frozen fruit & veggies
- Can soups
- Breakfast Sausage
- Smoked Sausage
- Frozen Meals
- Dry Beans
- Pasta Sauces
- and the list goes on!
My husband and I thought that it would be a cool idea to start sharing some of the recipes, that I’ve been creating using my Dollar Tree food. Believe it or not, I have come up with so many different recipes, that I just decided to make a series out of it. By starting this series, I’m hoping to help y’all save money on your grocery bill.So let’s get to the cooking.. and savings!!
The first Dollar Tree Gourmet recipe up is Creamy Jambalaya Pasta!
This delicious pasta is made in under 30 minutes. It can be made for dinner ( serve it with some Dollar Tree French Toast, and Broccoli!), or you can make it for a potluck.

Thank you for checking it out!
I made this recipe today. It was very good but I did some things a little different. In a skillet I added a little bit of olive oil and added my cut up sausage, some 150 count shrimp(didn’t get it from the dollar tree) and sautéed them. Then added my veggies. Everything else I followed the recipe and added some cajun seasoning. It was a good tasty dish and cheap. I’m sure following it exactly is very good and tasty too. Thanks for the recipes. I will be trying more of your recipes in the near future.
Going to try this as soon as possible it looks delicious…..keep up the good work it’s getting hard to find new and delicious ideas for dinner thats affordable

Hey Rosie! I think this series is an awesome idea will be trying this very soon.. how about a desert from dollar tree ingredients? maybe even a banana bread?? thanks again
Yes, I will be sharing a dessert next week 🙂
Thank you for these series so handy! I have tried your peach cobbler bread pudding it is to die for! I have also made tbe Louie pasta my daughters request it often! I will be trying this recipe as well.. Am also working on trying your pot roast (like you mom’s pot roast) but I can’t find some of d herbs? What can I substitute with?
You can use dry herbs. They will be at your local grocery store.
Hi. I just have to tell you that I made this recipe today and it is delicious. In the interest of full disclosure, though, I have to reveal that I made my own alfredo sauce and used that as the base of the recipe. Also, I pan fried the sausage to give additional texture. But, those are the only areas I deviated. The dish is delicious. Thank you soooo much for this recipe idea. Please keep them coming.
Thanks for trying it out!
Hi Val & Rosie. I did the same thing. I made my own Alfredo sauce. I also substituted cajun seasoning for the salt. I added in some roasted chicken that I had in the refrigerator. This meal was so tasty and my husband loved it. Thank you for your great recipes!
Wonderful dish! I’m going to share it with other single moms who are trying to feed their loved ones on a budget. Can’t wait for the next dish in your series! Thank you Rosie.
Hi Jackie! Glad that you liked it. I will be uploaded Dollar Tree Gourmet, every Wednesday!
Hi rosie i just wanted to think you for these series of dishes i was hoping you could do a crockpot meal with dollar tree ingredients.

I was very skeptical to try this recipe. But I was wrong. I made some for dinner. It was very good. I look forward to many more Dollar Tree recipes.
I have made this twice and it has been a big hit both times. Thank you for creating and sharing.
Hey Rosie I made a mistake and purchased garlic Parmesan sauce. Will it still work with the dish?
Hi there! Absolutely!
Looks very good . I will have to try this recipe
. I have tried the turkey wings last week. OMG they were the bomb.
