How about 3-4 ingredient recipes?

Sometimes I don't feel like following a recipe with a lot of ingredients, just want to make a simple meal , it can be in the skillet, crockpot, dutch oven, regular oven. Sometimes I will just open a can of Tuna, a can of cream of whatever soup I have on hand and cook some noodles with it. Or even a can of ham, can of chicken breast instead of tuna.

Unless I am trying to empty out the fridge, I seldom have more than four or five ingredients in my meals. A lot of pasta dishes are that way for me.

I enjoy pasta dishes too, sometimes all I need is one or two ingredients to make it really tasty.

Lemon Chicken Pasta.

Brown chopped chicken breast in a pan. Add cooked pasta, lemon juice and coarse oregano. Stir over heat to let pasta pick up browned bits from bottom of pan. Add a bit of finely shredded mozza and black pepper.

sounds good except for the beer I don't drink or use alcohol in anything, but that is just me, I don't like the taste.
