You can make filling meals using ingredients in your pantry!

These easy dinner recipes make use of ingredients you most likely already have in your pantry. Keep these recipes in your back pocket for days when you can’t make time to make a quick trip to the grocery—you can easily get your fill of good-tasting dishes by keeping your spice rack well-stocked with different herbs and seasonings.


Here are the 10 pantry staples we used for this round-up:







Canned beans or vegetables (tomatoes, corn, garbanzos, etc.)



Seasoning (salt, pepper, dried herbs, and spices)

Cooking oil or butter
