Eating More Pasta To Save Money At The Grocery Store? Try Asian Flavors For Variety

March 19, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Economizing consumers who are spending more of their food budget on pasta, but are a little tired of Italian-style, tomato-based dinners, might want to try Asian recipes. Food writer Ellen Brown says it’s a great way to save money while boosting vegetable content of meals. Asian food markets (and larger grocery stores) will have the necessary ingredients: egg noodles or spaghetti, toasted sesame oil, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, sweet chili sauce, dried shiitake mushrooms, rice paper pancakes, fresh ginger, scallions, snow peas, baby bok choy, thin Japanese eggplants and shallots. The key to Asian cooking? Slice thinly ahead of time and stir fry quickly.
