Six easy dinners from ALDI for $70

ALDI Meal Plan — start cooking 1/29/23

rustic mushroom lentil soup


  • Vegetarian three bean & lentil chili (use the orange or yellow bell pepper so that the red one is left to be prettier in Thursday’s recipe, if you like)
  • Note: the budget didn’t allow for any shredded cheese and/or green onions to top the chili this week, but I highly recommend adding some if you have wiggle room in yours, or have these on hand.
  • Serve with the hint of lime tortilla chips





  • Sausage, peppers, & onions naan pizza
  • Roasted veggies — roughly chop potatoes, broccoli, and the remaining bell pepper. Toss these in olive oil, seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning to taste. Start these in the oven while you’re getting the pizzas together; roast on a rimmed baking sheet for 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees or until potatoes are softened, stirring halfway through.



  • Leftovers, family pizza night (ALDI sells nice big take-and-bake deli pizzas), carryout, mix it up!

Easy-peasy: *** Add this week’s grocery list to your Instacart. ***


  1. You’ll need to check your pantry for staples not included in this Instacart list. *** See needed pantry staples, below.
  2. The list feature doesn’t allow me to add multiples of a single item or to change the weight of items. So: Before adding the list to your cart, change the following
    1. The “hint of lime” tortilla chips are a special buy this week and not showing in Instacart — add a note to your shopper to please add them to your order.
    2. Change the quantity on the fire roasted diced tomatoes to two, on the mushrooms to two, and on the great northern beans to two.
    3. Pick up 5 lbs of chicken drumsticks; add a note to your shopper.
    4. Pick up about 1.5 lbs of broccoli; add a note to your shopper.
  3. Add anything else you need for the week to your cart, and check out!

Please use the add your list to Instacart feature at your own risk, always double checking your cart against the recipes. Also note that Instacart prices are higher than in store, so your total will be higher than shown in the above grocery list.

** Pantry staples to check for before shopping: Olive oil, butter, coarse ground mustard, dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, baking cocoa, rosemary, thyme, parsley, smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, paprika, chili powder, crushed red pepper, cayenne, cumin, oregano, bay leaf, parsley, tarragon, garlic powder, sea salt, salt, seasoned salt, black pepper

Things to know about these meal plans

A couple of notes

  1. I try not to repeat main dish recipes more often than once a month, but you will see favorite easy recipes again in these weekly ALDI meal plans as the same meats and produce items come up again on sale. Part of the fun of meal planning lies in mixing old stand-bys with something new each week.
  2. If one or more of these recipes isn’t to your taste, or if you have other ingredients to use up, adapt the recipes in this ALDI meal plan to your family’s preferences. Or, just use the ideas here to supplement your own meal planning! See: Pantry staples to stock up on and how to modify a meal plan for your family.

** ad markets & dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 1/22-1/28 in Sunday ad markets, and 1/25-1/21 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices are from my local store in the Chicago suburbs. Prices and produce deals *can vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 1/29/23.
