San Remo Budget Busting Recipes

World Pasta Day is on 25 October so San Remo want to take the opportunity to remind people of the affordability and ease of making a pasta meal for the family.

San Remo have commissioned some research that found that Australians are spending big on takeaway – with families of young kids and students most often relying on it. 1 in 10 families of kids aged 3 and under are buying takeaway on a daily basis.

The average Australian spends $23.70 on a takeaway meal, which equates to over $1,200 a year for those purchasing weekly – the approximate cost of holiday for two in Bali. This rises to $36.20 for families with children aged between three and 12.

Interestingly, Australian women are consuming takeaway significantly more than men, with over two in five (41 per cent) purchasing takeaway at least once a week, compared with 27 per cent of men. Despite high workforce participation, statistics show that women still do the lion’s share of housework and childcare. This ‘double load’ may indicate why they are turning to convenience options. Women also spend more on takeaway compared to men – $27.70 vs $21.40 per delivery.

With economic growth in negative territory and persistent wage stagnation, San Remo wants to raise awareness among consumers of the cost-effectiveness, ease and versatility of pasta as an alternative to expensive take-outs.

Budget Busting Recipes:

San Remo has released a special collection of ‘budget busting’ recipes to show Australians of all backgrounds and ages some easy, nutritious ways to prepare a meal, without having to invest in expensive ingredients or devote hours of their precious time. These include San Remo Tubular Spaghetti with Napolitana Sauce & Fresh Basil and San Remo Wagon Wheels with Cauliflower, Lemon &, Chilli, which can be made with ingredients costing less than $5 for a family of four – less than the average delivery fee of a takeaway.

This collection of recipes has been created by San Remo to show that preparing a nutritious, tasty meal for the whole family need not be expensive, or time-consuming. The Budget Busting Recipes can be prepared quickly and are packed full of delicious ingredients that cost as little as $5-$10 for a dish that serves four people.
