It happens. The week gets crazy. Groceries get eaten. And suddenly it’s 5 o’clock and there’s no time to dash to the store and you need to get something ready for dinner! That’s where a well-stocked pantry can be a lifesaver!

Emergency Pantry Pasta Salad


4 cups pasta, cooked and drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can nibblet corn, drained
1 red onion, diced
1 red pepper, chopped
Your favorite southwest salad dressing

Variation: Substitute artichoke hearts for the black beans and nibblet corn and use balsamic vinegar in place of salad dressing.
