I actually just bought a couple of these last week out of curiosity. It very quickly went from, "lol, it's only a dollar, you can't expect much", to, "what the fuck? why does this product even exist and why did I waste my time with it!?"

Cool story, zoomer. These can be made into 2-3 meals. I'm not a fatass so I israfil make half, sometimes cheesy and sometimes with tomato sauce. You can make your own pesto for cents on the dollar too.

You're why companies can get away with overcharging for basic shit, you're actually too stupid to NOT get taken advantage of. As much as people like you pretend cooking at home is prohibitively expensive, you're really just justifying your laziness. If you want to buy microwave pasta """meals""" at a 300% markup because you're paradoxically too good for walmart pasta, or even just name brand pasta for 30 cents more, go right ahead.

I wasn't one of the anons you replied to. I know how much dry pasta costs. I always laugh at people when their go-to is fucking Walmart.

So we've already established that a box of noodles is about $1, which means you're already at $0.35 with just the pasta and tomato paste. Somehow reducing oil, pesto, basil, garlic, onion, milk, butter, and parmesan to "some spices" might be the most disingenuous thing I've ever seen posted on /ck/.

>oil, pesto, basil, garlic, onion, milk, butter, and parmesan
>don't already have said ingredients
Oil and butter: sure.
Garlic and onion: yeah, I usually have those around.
Parmesan: only buy a wedge if I'm specifically making Italian food.
Milk: rarely cook with milk, so probably buy it once or twice a year. More likely I have a small container of heavy cream, but still only if I was cooking something specific.
Pesto and basil: so you obviously already made pesto and had some leftover basil sitting around. You might as well say you made pizza and beer for $1, and the beer was a dollar but the pizza was left over from the night before so it should only be considered "some spices" and not count towards the cost of the meal.

1) I've never seen canned pesto in my life.
2) I would never buy a $2 can of pesto.
3) I would never use any pesto "sparingly", "for the herbs" as opposed to just using the herbs themselves.
4) I would never keep pesto sitting around for a year. Just because it's oil based doesn't mean it doesn't go off.
5) I would never keep anything that came in a can around for a year.
6) Why are you buying pesto in a fucking can when you have oil, basil, garlic, and parmesan sitting around?
7) Why would you ever buy something that's supposed to be bright and fresh in a can?
8) Who the fuck buys pesto in a can?

I'm drinking right now and made pasta earlier, pasta is literally the go-to for drunk food because you can just boil some noodles and slap some sauce on top.

You can literally boil pasta in 12 minutes and that’s including the time it takes to boil the water. Buy a can of sauce or make your own for like $5. Eat that shit like 6 times with better flavors and bigger portion. Stay broke and skinny you think faggot! Picrel

I'm a single man who's been in a desperate spiral for years now, and even I have at least some skill in the kitchen so I don't have to eat crap like this.

it used to be really good. my edgy friend growing up introduced me to them, specifically the fried rice, and they were seriously delicious. that was about 10 years ago. I tried them again about 2 or 1 year(s) ago and they were awful.
