S.L.I.M Stands for Slightly Lowered Income Meals (TM). It is for those of us who have been hit hard with these troubling economic ties, but still love to eat. I will be building a website when I get around to it. In the meantime, The whole philosophy is that you do NOT have to spend a lot of money or time to enjoy a good meal. This is surprisingly good and easy to make...

  • 2 cups of small pasta shells
  • 1 small can of plain tomato sauce
  • 1/2 bag of frozen peas
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tbs of dried Basil
  • 1 tbs of Olive Oil
  • grated Ramono Cheese


  1. Boil the pasta as directed on the box.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a small pot over medium heat and sweat the onions in the hot oil. Sweating means cook them until they are almost translucent. When you can smell them, they are done.
  3. Add the tomato sauce with peas and season with the basil (it should go without saying, but salt and pepper is an ingredient in everything)
  4. Let it simmer about 20 minutes
  5. Add the pasta and mix well
  6. Top with grated Ramono
