Pantry Staples

Weeknights sometimes beg for an quick and easy dinner solution. We’ve got our shelves stocked with 30-minute meal pantry staples like pasta, roasted peppers, anchovies, white beans, capers, grilled artichokes, and of course our famously fruity and delicious Extra Virgin olive oil.

Boil plenty of well-salted water in a pot with a dash of oil, pour yourself a drink, then improvise a few toppings while the pasta is cooking, perfectly al dente, of course. Toss in some fresh greens or some leftover chicken if you feel like it. By golly you can even get away without dirtying a knife or a pan with some of these toppings. Add a few scrapings of Parmesan and Voila: Dinner is served.
