Easy Inspired Pastas and Soups! Since most of us will be staying home for the next couple of weeks I thought I would offer some recipes that you can easily make using staple ingredients. The grocery shopping situation has been absolutely crazy! These recipes will save you time and money.
I’m hoping things will calm down over the next few days and stores will be able to restock and everyone will be able to get fresh produce and meats they need. We did our shopping and already are thinking of new ways to cook up easy meals for the week.
And while we’ll be sharing new recipes later this week, I wanted to offer some simple and easy “pasta” dishes you may enjoy cooking for the family along with some links to delicious soups.
These dishes cost very little and are easy to prepare and easy to follow. While we are hunkering down and spending time at home, let’s venture out and try new dishes!
Get the kids involved and have them make an easy meal or dessert.
If you love spicy food, you may try our easy vegetarian chili; it makes a huge batch and enough to freeze some.
Most of these recipes are ones made with staple ingredients you probably already have on hand. Here is a link with ideas and an essential pantry list to help you get started.
Don’t let the fancy titles intimidate you to try them. And if you are looking for something specific, please leave a comment below and we can send you some recommendations.

Angel Hair Pasta with Lemon Sauce ~ The sauce is made with fresh lemons resulting in a zesty and refreshing flavor.

Finally, in case you missed our post on 10 Healthy Vegetable Soups, these are perfect recipes to make with fresh or frozen veggies.
And don’t forget to load up on your favorite ingredients, like butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar, and chocolate chips, and make your family’s favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies!
We hope everything will go back to normal soon. In the meantime, keep your family healthy and try to maintain your sanity if you’re hunkering down at home.
