Woman cooking in her apartment at Olympus Fenwick in Savannah, Georgia



Cooking at home shouldn't be boring. In fact, spending time at home in these Savannah, GA apartments is a great opportunity to get creative with what's in your pantry. Here are a few easy recipes with basic ingredients you probably already have: rice, pasta, and canned goods. Put them to use in a delicious meal at any time of the week.


Rice is extremely adaptable and can be used for a lot more than just stir fries. It is very shelf-stable and ready to eat in minutes. Try a sweet version for breakfast or combine it with some meat and broth for a light and comforting soup for lunch or dinner. You can also throw it together with some of those canned soups in the cabinet for an easy casserole.


Like rice, dried pasta is always good to have on hand and can be enjoyed in many ways. You probably also have an unopened jar of pasta sauce or diced tomatoes. Dress them up with some cheese (meat optional, of course) and seasonings in the oven to make baked spaghetti. Keep it even simpler with this pantry pasta recipe that features a creamy sauce of Parmesan cheese, garlic, and butter. Want a challenge or an activity to do with your roommates? Fresh pasta is easy to make at home and incredibly satisfying.


Canned goods last ages in the pantry and can be prepared with other staple ingredients for nearly limitless meal options. All of those cans and jars can be added in many combinations with vegetables, soups, and seasonings to create casseroles, sauces, easy desserts, and more. And since they're all shelf stable, there's no rush to use anything before it expires.

These easy recipes with basic ingredients are just the beginning! Meals don't have to be complicated or time-consuming to be delicious. You may even put on a podcast while you cook and make a fun evening of it. And if you’re looking for a new place to call home, please contact us.
