So this little trick seems to solve every pasta problem but the carbs. Get a jar for each pasta, rice, and grain, a chalkboard label, and a chalkboard pen. Include the cook-time any instructions you need to reference. For instance, in the below pantry, quinoa was a new item and not something they regularly cooked. It will save time looking up cooking directions if you put the steps on the label.
Here are some of our favorite canisters and jars to have on-hand:
