We call these 'hero recipes' because I regularly make them to save food that might otherwise be thrown out. Any time you need to make a meal with a bunch of random stuff, these dishes can come to the rescue. With these recipes and a reasonably stocked pantry, you can cobble together something delicious. Even if you haven't gone grocery shopping in a week, and everything in the crisper drawer is wilted. We promise.
