Keeping a well-stocked pantry allows dinner to be on the table in no time. Keep an assortment of canned tomatoes in the pantry for quick pasta sauces.
Traditionally, puttanesca sauces contain anchovies. I did not have any in my pantry, so I left it out, and it is just as delicious. When cooking from your pantry, do not skip a recipe because you are missing an ingredient. Chances are it will be just as delicious without it.
