Shrimp and Brie Linguine

Cost per serving: $4

Budget Tip: Buy medium or small shrimp. They may take longer to peel and devein, but there’s more quantity per pound. Another tip? Halve large shrimp lengthwise (three can look skimpy on the plate, but six … ). Warehouse clubs have fantastic prices on sun-dried tomatoes and cheese―two items that can bust your budget if you don’t shop carefully.
