Secretly Budget Pasta

I call this Secretly Budget Pasta because I make it when I'm short on funds. This recipe is super quick and cheap, but the outcome is something fancy and delicious. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: 2 servings



  1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook spaghetti as directed to al dente.
  2. Warm up a pan to medium high with a bit of oil. Add all your vegetables except for the tomato. Fry until lightly browned and softened, about 5 minutes, Stir often.
  3. Ad

  4. Drain pasta but reserve the water it was boiled in. Add pasta to vegetables.
  5. Add the granulated stock and the diced tomato.
  6. Ad

  7. Add some of the reserved pasta water to the mix a tablespoon at a time. The starch in the water helps create a beautiful thick sauce, and picks up all the yummy browned vegetable bits at the bottom of your pan. To finish up, add salt and pepper to taste. I like mine with a bit of cheese and hot sauce. ;)
