Spaghetti with Green Olive Pesto

This is one of those great dishes for people who don’t think they can cook, mostly because there is so little actual cooking involved in making it. Can you boil pasta? Can you put some stuff into a food processor and press the “on” button? Yep, thought so.

Check you out—you just made dinner.

  • 1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives $2.50 for a 10 oz. jar

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon $0.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $8.50
