  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta according to the package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

Note:

We used dried basil in this dish to cut costs, but you can substitute 2 tablespoons fresh basil, if desired. Frozen or previously frozen shrimp is often on sale at supermarkets. Total cost: $8.30/Cost per serving: $2.08. (The cost is based on the amount of products used in the recipe.)
