So you go to go get pasta and it's 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , $20 .
I've got three different kinds for less than $2 per serving .
That is .
But cheaper whenever I go out to eat , I will order pasta if I'm at a great restaurant .
Of course , a good restaurant makes great pasta .
It's always worth the money , but usually it's like 18 $20 and you can make this stuff at home for a fraction of the price .
So it's a perfect but cheaper candidate while we're here talking about it .
Uh You , me and nd oh my God , please .
Romantic is I'm gonna talk about three different ways to make a great pasta as cheaply as physically possible .
I could go on and on about pasta rather than talking about it .
I think we should be about it .
And let's do this , shall we ?
So , before we get started , I'd like to mention pasta shape , dried spaghetti works excellent with all these sauces and is an ultra cheap 1 to $2 per pound option .
Anyway , sauce number one is a chef and home cook .
Favorite Marcella Hazan's Classic onion butter , tomato sauce , medium sauce pot , add a 28 ounce can of peeled .
A Roma tomatoes .
The Cento brand cost me about three bucks but you can go even cheaper here if you want .
Add in one whole onion that's been sliced in half peeled with the roots still attached in five tablespoons or 70 g of unsalted butter .
Give it a light seasoning of salt to taste and a small pitch of sugar .
Then place it on a stove over medium heat .
Bring that up to a gentle simmer and lower the heat to medium low simmer that for 45 minutes stirring .
Occasionally mashing the whole pieces of tomato against the wall of the pan until you get a lovely sauce like this , then simply remove the onion , discard it and adjust the salt levels to your taste from there .
You can boil £1 of spaghetti or bucatini to a nice texture .
Uh It should be al dente .
All right .
That's the right way and make sure to season your pasta water generously with salt .
I want this bad boy as salty as the ocean .
Then toss your drained pasta and all of your tomato sauce with a little splash of reserved pasta water .
Then plate it up and enjoy with some fresh shaped Parmesan Regian .
Should you desire it now ?
Not including the cheese ?
This bad boy sits at a solid $1.06 50 cents per serving the cheese tacks on like another 30 cents to a dollar .
So next up , we've got a surprise Alfredo , which is shockingly affordable to make in a large sauce pan , add four tablespoons of 56 g of unsalted butter heat , over medium heat till melted and boo and then add one cup or 240 mils of heavy cream .
Bring that to a nice simmer and let that simmer away for about 1 to 2 minutes or till emulsified and beginning to slightly thicken .
Then turn off the heat and whisk in 1.5 cups or 100 and 10 g of finely grated Parmesan Reggiano .
Keep whisking until completely melted and emulsified .
Then finish with two cloves of freshly grated garlic , some fresh cracked black pepper and salt to taste separately .
Boil £1 of a nice wide noodle such as pepper doll and just toss that with your sauce along with a splash or two of pasta water and serve that bad boy with some extra cheese and black pepper on top .
Bone apple tea to you too .
Last but certainly not least is both a friend to our wallet as it is to our heart and souls .
How is that ?
Italian said , I do good .
Let , let me know to get yelled at .
Very excited .
Now , go ahead and boil yourself £1 of spaghetti or as the Italians say spaghetti .
All right , I'm getting out of myself here .
Don't forget to heavy season that water By the way , now , when your pasta is almost done in a large saute pan , add a third cup or 80 mils of extra virgin olive oil heat that over medium heat until hot .
It's a lot of heating .
Then add seven cloves of very finely chopped garlic and one teaspoon of 5 g of red pepper flakes .
Saute that beauty until fragrant and nice about three minutes .
Now , once your pasta is done , reserve about half a cup of the pasta water during your pasta , add it immediately to your hot oil , turn off the heat and toss aggressively splashing with a little pasta water until you've got a nice coating of oil season that generously with salt to taste and finish with half a cup or 12 g of very finely chopped fresh parsley .
That bad boy up .
Nice and tall .
Feel free to grate some parm on top .
Should you desire it ?
And that right there is one of the simplest yet , greatest pasta dishes of all time .
So we have three pastas that each have plenty of wallet saving potential and you can add your budget protein of choice if you wish .
But now I think it's time that we talk about how they taste .
It's a bus that time pasta .
This is perhaps the most affordable , easy to make pasta in all of history with all that said that puts this plate of pasta at this number right here .
This is something everyone should know how to make and if you don't already and I've talked about it before .
So has our boy babish babby .
I love you .
So , uh , let's , uh , dig in .
Oh my God .
Pasta encompasses .
Although a tongue twister sings harmonies on your tongue as well .
That doesn't make sense .
It's got all the qualities you want in a plate of pasta .
It's rich but not too rich .
It's garlicky , but in a subtle way , there's a little bit of kick from the garlic .
There's a little bit of spice from the , the red pepper flakes and there's a little bit of juice from the past .
It's a good , this is what a pasta should be .
This takes 10 minutes , take the damn time .
This is something that I think a lot of kids hold near and dear to their heart .
You know , you go out with your , your family .
It's a Saturday night school not happening .
What even is school ABC si don't know .
But one thing you are looking forward to is the Alfredo that's been a hit right in front of you that could have broken if your Alfredo doesn't do that .
I don't want it on your first bite .
You're gonna ask , why did I ever pay $17 for this ?
So simple , so easy ingredients that aren't really even that expensive .
There's nothing exotic about it and it's not that hard to make five minutes of boiling and simmering and stirring and you're that's what you're paying $17 for when you go out .
So this comes in at this price per serving .
Now , granted that's without chicken .
But like you incorporate chicken , you might tack on a dollar or two to that big whoa , much better than uh than 17 .
This is one that I've talked to you guys about before I hold this very near and dear to my heart .
A lot of the Italian cooking that I learned when I was a young kid was from Marcella Hazan .
Shout out to her .
This is her classic .
Everyone knows this .
The OG onion and butter tomato sauce so simple makes me wanna cry .
Obviously , the simplicity in the ingredients is gonna automatically make it cheap .
But the key point is this is a perfectly balanced like you take a bite and you're like balancing , right ?
But it's perfectly balanced .
So you're not doing that .
I don't know where I'm going with this analogy .
The sweetness from the onion combats the over acidity of the tomato .
So it's nice and smooth tasting .
It's salty .
It's got richness from the butter .
This is truly perfect tomato sauce and you can make the whole darn thing less than $6.50 cents .
But do you want to know what else has nice nudes and is coated in sauce b roll ?
All right guys .
And that is it .
So we made three different kinds of pasta Alfredo pasta .
And what was the third one again .
How could I forget ?
Marcella Hazan's greatest tomato sauce of all time .
It's so beautifully simple and cheap .
The , there's a message here and the message is simple ingredients cared for .
It's not supposed to be expensive .
It's just beauty and simplicity tech and a little bit of love , bro .
I hope you learned something also .
II I keep having the , the conversation back and forth about being in the cabinet , not in the cabinet .
We're out of the cabin again because sometimes we remember to put the camera here and sometimes we don't .
So you tell us what you want to see in the comments below .
So with all that said , if you enjoyed this video or you learned something , leave a like subscribe and I will see you next time .
Good night .
Mm Stinky .
