Sometimes I have unannounced visits from family that can make me a little stressed when it looks like they will stay until dinner.  I usually have most of these ingredients on hand (I make a point of always having cottage cheese, cream cheese, parmesan, canned chicken broth, freeze-dried mushrooms, and packages of pasta on hand)  So the only thing I need to worry about is the pinenuts - but lately I’ve kept a bag in my refrigerator - they add a “gourmet” touch to anything in a pinch.
