This Pantry Chicken Spaghetti is a great meal to prepare for your family and all the ingredients can be kept in the pantry. It is creamy and full of flavor and your family will love it . This is a great quick dish if you are in a pinch or trying to clean out your pantry. Necessity is the mother of invention and I have learned to keep my pantry stocked and know how to use the goods when needed. Living on the Gulf Coast my entire life and having survived a few natural disasters has taught me a lot. I always keep a rotating stock of canned goods of all varieties . This Pantry Chicken Spaghetti is a great example but another is my basic Tuna Casserole .
What is great about making meals from your pantry is you can change things up a bit. This recipe calls for Rotel tomatoes but if you don’t like the spice replace it with a can of diced tomatoes. Also the creamed soup combination can be changed up to what you have on hand. Mushrooms are always optional , we all love them in my family and I always have them in my pantry. This is also a great dish to make if you have leftover chicken that needs used.
As you can see these ingredients are all canned and everything here I generally always have in my pantry. Other items I always have in my pantry are:
- Canned meats like tuna and salmon
- Peanut Butter or other nut butters
- Canned vegetables and tomatoes
- Boxed pasta dishes
- variety of pastas
- variety of soups
- canned and dry beans
- powdered and canned milk
Start by boiling your pasta according to the packages directions .
While the pasta is boiling in a medium pan on low heat combine the soups, rotel, chicken and mushrooms. Then stir in spices .
Continue to warm until the noodles are done.
Stir in hot pasta .
Serve with what you may have on hand. I made garlic toast from sandwich bread. Canned vegetables are another great option for serving.
