Homemade or Store Bought? Cost?

Obviously it’s healthier to make your own than it is to buy but sometime you have to wonder what the cost is to do it yourself.

Let’s take Cannelloni which is in the oven cooking.

I had bought some of the ingredients prior to and had some things in stock.

Ingredient List

  • Tomato Sauce (1.00-1.20)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese (usually already stocked but if not Bulk barn sells cheap)
  • Ricotta Cheese (Food Basics 3.50 goes on sale also)
  • Cannelloni Pasta (24) (Food Basics 2.29)
  • Frozen Spinach (1.29)
  • Egg (usually already stocked but maybe .20)

Total Cost $8.50 for 24 cannelloni serves 8.

We bought the frozen PC version on sale for $8.00 and it barely served 4.
