Cheap, cheerful and challenging: The ultimate budget eats

Cheap and cheerful is what many students are looking for when it comes to a budget-crunch time meal. This episode of Two-Minute Noodles is devoted to exactly that – the easiest, cheapest, and most oddly (and challengingly) delicious meals possible. Luke McPherson, a student who lives away from home, introduces his own special pasta sauce recipe , and it offers remarkable value.

Hosts Jasmine Leung and Joshu Faye-Chauhan explore the options, and talk with an expert from food science Immie Bismann about how un-hearty the meal is.
