Using just a few basic pantry essentials, you can create a whole variety of different dishes! Just by thinking creatively (and with a little help from Yummly's search options), you can mix up your dining options with the same old pantry foods you always buy. Here are 10 delicious meals that use the same general ingredients like ground beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and a collection of foods you've probably got already (salt and pepper, dried herbs, pasta, bread, rice, etc). Get creative with your food and re-invent your go-to pantry meals.
