Yes! Having recipes using pantry staples is important, especially now with so many people sick. I've been home sick since the day after Christmas, and we are definitely running low of food. Thank goodness my brother gave me an Italian gift basket for Christmas. We had spaghetti tonight. :-) Love butter beans so definitely adding these ingredients to my shopping list.
Such a yummy and simple recipe...
