Hot "pantry" dinners that aren't pasta...

The Dairy Queen | Jan 14, 2010 04:51 AM

So, in the interest of getting weeknight dinners on the table when I'm crushingly busy with work and other commitments, I've been trying to arm myself with a list of dishes I can make entirely out of my pantry for these evenings when I've forgotten to shop or plan ahead.

But, I'm finding that my list skews heavily towards pasta: pasta with clams, with artichokes, with shrimp, etc.

Help me break out of my rut, please.

And, I use the expanded definition of pantry, which includes anything I can keep in my freezer and defrost quickly and things that keep a long time in the fridge, such as eggs or parm cheese.

Also, especially this time of year, I lean towards wanting HOT meals. So, no dinner salads and such...

Thank you!
