Question I need to make lunch but have nothing! Time sensitive!

Ok, so im home alone. I have no drivers license to go to the store and no one to go for me. I have ONLY these ingredients. I want something yummy! Please respond ASAP!

I have:
  • Butter
  • Angel Hair
  • Parmesan
  • Garlic
  • Limes
  • Olive Oil
  • Flour
  • Corn Starch
  • Cheddar
  • Eggs
  • Onions
Spices:
  • Ginger(fresh)
  • Eregano(fresh)
  • Cinnamon
  • Chilli Powder
  • Cummin
  • Nutmeg
  • Paprika
  • Marjoram
  • Cavenders
  • Cayan
  • Lemon Pepper w/ Garlic and Onion
  • Allspice
  • Cardemon
  • Tumeric
  • Cloves
  • Curry Powder
All of the ones w/o fresh by them are ground up.

Thats pretty much it. I dont want an omelet! Please tell me if you have a suggestion that requires an ingredient I dont have listed. I will tell you if I have it or not. I wont have anything too exotic. You dont have to use all of them they are just waht I have. It is time sensative! Feel free to post late, it will help me for the future.

Cook up the angel hair then toss with either olive oil (if it is extra virgin) or butter or a little of both. Grate up some Parmesan and throw that in. Chop up a little bit of oregano and throw that in. Salt and pepper as well. You could also thrown in any number of other things you have listed like the lime, cinnamon, chili powder, cayenne, lemon pepper w/garlic and onion, or most other spices on your list (but not all at the same time).

I wanted it to be really creative...which is why I added all of the spices I have. Do you think butter would taste better than Olive Oil?

If you have garlic then saute that and add it in. If you like onions then you can do the same.

I do have garlic and onions. But i dont like onions in pasta w/o red sauce. Thank you. I guess I will go ahead to making it...I wish I had wine and mushrooms.

Actually, I dont have fresh oregano. I have fresh rosemary...do you think that could work?
