Pantry Spaghetti

  • Prep Time 0:5
  • Cook Time 0:15
  • Estimated Cost $9.50

I meant to go grocery shopping over the weekend. I really did…but I just had better things to do. My friend Danny was visiting from Boston, and so there were drinks to be drunk and dance moves to be attempted…and I just didn’t get to it. So making dinner with a near-empty fridge last night was a bit daunting. Well sometimes a lack of options forces us to be creative (and thankful for a well-stocked pantry) and the stars align and the resulting dish is truly fantastic, as this one was. Serve it on its own or accompanied by a green salad.


  • 1/2 lb spaghetti $2
  • 3 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped Pantry
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs $2
  • 2 tsp red pepper flakes $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • 1/8 cup grated Parmesan $3
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 1 small bunch fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped $1

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Cook the pasta according to directions in salted water. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for about 1 minute, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Add the bread crumbs and stir to combine well with garlic and oil. Allow the crumbs to toast for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. When the pasta has finished cooking, drain it and return it to its pot. Toss with the garlic-breadcrumb mixture, the red pepper flakes, Parmesan, parsley and salt and pepper.
