Your Guide to Pantry Pasta
by Catherine Switzer of Baby Beets

I love chatting about Pantry Pasta, it truly is a way to get creative in the kitchen, using up some staples and including some of your favourites. 

The measurements in this recipe are vague for a reason. It gives you lots of options to scale things up or back depending on preference and amount you are making.

Crushed chili pepper (optional)

½ - 1 cup of protein. Chickpeas or can of tuna, drained & rinsed
