Food Tuesday

PANTRY RAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today's meal is bought to you by a long day. We've all had them. You work, you go to meetings, you come home and want to order takeout more than anything. Yep, that's the one.

I had that kind of day yesterday but instead of ordering high sodium lo mein or greasy pizza, I opted to take a bunch of staples out of my pantry and make something happen. This pasta is the result.

Instead of providing a recipe (because making it really depends on what you keep as pantry staples), I will just encourage opting for compatible flavors. I went for Mediterranean flavors and added olive oil, chickpeas, marinated artichokes, spinach, and roasted tomatoes with garlic to 2 types of pasta (to clear out small amounts of each).

All of the ingredients are staples of mine. What do you keep your pantry stocked with? What's your favorite pantry raid meal?
