Greek Pasta with Lemon and Feta
Once you are rolling on building your pantry, you might wonder what you can make with some of the items or if you will be stuck eating the same old things all the time. The good news is that with a little bit of creativity there is no limit to what you can cook up in your kitchen. Last Friday I was inspired by this recipe for Greek Chicken Pasta over at allrecipes.com (I tried to link it but couldn't get it to work. If you want the recipe just type in the recipe name at the website.) and decided to adapt it to use what I had. In my pantry I had lots of pasta, a case of canned diced tomatoes, a can of black olives, an onion and garlic. I'll never be caught without fresh garlic, there is no substitute. My fresh ingredients were the feta and lemon. We are eating 90% vegetarian so I left out the chicken and we never missed it. So we had the lovely pasta dish you see above for our family dinner. It was quick, easy and delicious. I'm excited to show you more of what I cook from my pantry and would love to hear what you are cooking from yours. If you have a blog you can show us what you are whipping up, just add a link to your comment. Happy eating!
