Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta in a pot of salted water until just tender, drain, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the shrimp and season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of paprika or according to your taste. Toss the shrimp to make sure they are all seasoned.
  3. Heat a large non stick pan on medium heat and add the oil, when hot, add the shrimp and stir often to cook until pink on all sides, takes just a few minutes then quickly remove them from the pan to a plate.
  4. Same pan, add the butter and onion and cook, stirring often until golden brown, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to a minute. Now stir in the white wine and cook this to reduce to 25% of the liquid remaining in the pan.
  5. When the wine is reduced, stir in the cream and bring to a low boil then reduce heat to a simmer for 2 minutes. Now sprinkle on the Parmesan and stir only until smooth and creamy, simmer for a minute or two then turn off the heat, do not let it get to a boil. Season to taste with additional salt, pepper, and paprika as desired.
  6. Stir in the shrimp then the pasta and toss to coat the pasta.
  7. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan and parsley.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht/500 grams of large shrimp. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

I was hooked on just the mention of chicken and pasta. Now this is a slow cooker recipe which means it is pretty much hands off for the most part. Several shortcuts are listed for savings as well. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker insert, then add the soup, cream cheese, broth and dressing mix to the slow cooker and mix, see you did not even need to dirty a bowl for this.
  2. Stir in the chicken. Cover and cook on Low setting for 4-6 hours.
  3. Now right after you turned on the slow cooker, go ahead and heat a pot of water to boiling, add some salt. When boiling, add the fettuccine and cook until just before before done. Drain and rinse, cover and place in the fridge. Take a break for a few hours now.
  4. About 45 minutes to an hour before serving, add the pasta from the fridge, and sprinkle in some spring onion or parsley, reserve a bit of spring onion or parsley for garnish, stir well and cover and cook for just long enough to heat the pasta through, 45 minutes to an hour.
  5. Serve with spring onion or parsley sprinkled on top, and sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese to taste.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 75 Baht/kilo for the chicken. The Cream cheese is about 120 Baht, go with Caroline brand, that saves you 30 Baht right there. For 6 servings, this is about 95 cents per serving.

Variant: Use Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup in place of the mushroom soup.

Shortcuts: Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup.

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, salt both sides of each rib, then add to the pot and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic, carrot, celery, onion, bell pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir to combine and then partially cover with a lid. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are soft, about 6 minutes. Add the wine, bay leaves, thyme, crushed red pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt and simmer until most of the wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  3. Nestle in the browned ribs (and any accumulated juices), then add the crushed tomatoes and 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup tomato juice from the can. Bring to a high simmer, then adjust to a low simmer and cover the pot partially with the lid. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender and falling apart and the sauce has reduced, about 2 hours.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook according to the package instructions, drain, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water.
  5. Stir the parsley into the sauce and adjust the seasoning to taste with salt. Thin out with a little of the reserved pasta water and stir some of the basil.
  6. Divide the cooked pasta among bowls and top each with some ragout. Drizzle each bowl with a little olive oil, top with a generous amount of Parmesan and garnish with a few basil leaves.
Recipe Notes

Overall, the only costly item here is the pork shoulder but that is 50 Baht/500 grams, so for 4 servings, this is about 37 cents per serving. Excellent value.
