Sesame Cashew Pasta - SUPER easy

Here's a fave from my friends in Santa Fe. It's a regular at our house.

12 oz whole wheat spaghetti (0.97) (Trader Joes)
1/2 cup (3 oz) roasted cashews (0.75, large container at Costco)
2 T dark sesame oil (0.20) (TJ's)
1 T olive oil (0.10) (TJs)
2 T rice wine vinegar (0.15) (TJs)
3 T low sodium soy sauce (0.28) (TJs)
2 large cloves garlic (0.10)
3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (0.02)
1/3 c. water
1 bunch cilantro (0.79)

Cook pasta. Blend all other ingredients in blender, and toss with pasta.

Total is $3.36 for 6 1-cup servings. Garnish with extra cashews.

Without extra garnish that's 0.56 per serving. Leftovers are better with extra soy sauce to moisten.

Bigger eaters will eat more.
