    Nancy Jo's Note:

    Obviously, her cupboard is NOT bare, but if you do find a bone, the dog can have it because you won't need it for this. It can be reminiscent of Italian or Mexican food, if you're in that mood, or not, if you're not. It will serve at least four, probably a lot more, depending on what you throw in. And most of the preparation is opening cans, while the pasta is cooking. As a bonus, if you find a really good combination, you can name it and share it.

      I made half the recipe using leftover Veal Scaloppine for Two, 1 cup pasta sauce, 1 can chicken broth, diced zucchini, and orzo pasta. This is an easy recipe to personalize to your own taste or "what's in the cupboard?" I love it! Made for PAC Spring 08. Thanks for posting Nancy Jo.
