BrokeAss Gourmet

Angel Hair with Wasabi, Peas and Mint

  • Prep Time 0:25
  • Cook Time 0:05
  • Estimated Cost $12.00

It’s no secret that pasta is an inexpensive, filling pantry staple to have on hand, but seriously, you have to stop eating it with store-bought jarred sauce. You’re better than that. Just because you’re broke (or whatever, “frugal”) doesn’t mean that you should be subjected to such boring fare. Make this on a Sunday night and eat a gourmet lunch or dinner for the next 4 days for just $3 per serving.

Hint: Try batting your eyelashes and asking your local sushi joint for extra wasabi the next time you order takeout. They’ll likely give it to you for free.


  • 1 lb dried angel hair (cappellini) pasta $1
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted $1.50 for 12 oz.
  • 2 cloves garlic Pantry
  • 2 handfuls of fresh mint leaves $1
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • 2 tsp prepared wasabi $3 for 4 oz.
  • 4 oz. crumbled feta $4 for 8 oz.
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 4


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions in salted boiling water. Drain and return to pot.
  2. In a food processor, combine half of the peas, the mint, the garlic, the olive oil and the wasabi. Puree until a chunky pesto forms. Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss with hot pasta. Add remaining peas, feta, red pepper flakes and more salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Serve hot or chilled.
