Many of us find our heart-racing, drool-inducing, I-can't-wait-to-get-in-the-kitchen inspiration at the farmers market. Or the butcher shop. Or the fish counter. We rarely turn to our pantries for inspiration, and instead save the pantry-rummaging for nights that dinner feels like a burden.
But with a can of tomatoes -- or a stack of them -- the pantry can be a place of exploration: an easy path to a burden-free dinner, just as exciting as one after a trip to the market.
