We’ve all been there — we’ve stretched the last grocery run out and are left with pretty much just the basics. Not to worry, these pantry staple recipes will get dinner on the table in no time without a trip to the grocery store!
Cacio E Pepe
Cacio E Pepe is one of those dishes that is much more humble than it sounds and also greater than the sum of its parts. All you need is parmesan cheese, romano cheese, olive oil, pasta, salt, and pepper. Don’t have one of the cheeses? No worries, just leave it out – it will be just as delicious!
Buttermilk Cheddar Corn Cakes
These easy corn cakes are savory, delicious, and can be used as a side or main dish! Plus, you can use whatever corn (canned, fresh, or frozen) or cheese you have on hand and still get delicious results!
As long as you have potatoes and meat, you can make a skillet hash for dinner when the pickings are slim. The original recipe includes eggs, onion, and sausage, but you can toss in whatever you have on hand!
Spicy Three-Bean Chili
Few things are as comforting as chili, and this easy pantry chili hits the mark every time. It comes together with a few staples like tomato paste, salsa, and three cans of beans – any beans you have will work! Serve it up with a side of rice, or add some meat if you have it!
Pioneer Woman’s Pantry Pasta
Ree Drummond does it again with this pantry pasta recipe! The recipe is written with things that Ree commonly has in her pantry at the end of the week, but it will work and taste delicious with the items in your pantry.
