Fettuccine Alfredo- just three ingredients, butter cheese and pasta

Any kind of one skillet Hamburg casseroles. Brown beef with onions and garlic. Add some canned or frozen veggies and a can of cream of mushroom soup.

Pasta with olive oil, garlic and parm cheese.

Taking Andy's Pasta with olive oil and garlic as a base ( leave out parm unlessI note to add):
1) Add Broccoli to this (Rotelli or mall/ medium shells)
2) At room temp add Diced tomatoes, basil and diced Mozzarella cheese (Linguini)
3) Add Spinach and crumbled feta cheese (Bowties) ( room temp )
4) Add Multiple veggies ( mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli...) got pasta primavera
5) Add Roasted halved brussel sprouts ( or shredded ) , with he parm cheese and a few shakes of oregano. ( linguini)
6) Add a bunch of grilled veggies, makes a nice ' Grilled" pasta primavera ( With Parm)

- Sautee sliced mushrooms til they start to brown a little, add garlic (dont let it burn). then toss in some already pre cooked Pappardelle pasta and a few slabs of butter and Parm cheese if you like. Can garnish with chopped parsley or drizzle with some truffle oil.

(What I call) Mexican Chicken. You can use bone-in or boneless, breast or thigh meat - whatever you prefer. I use boneless/skinless chicken breasts. If they are thick "Dolly Parton" breasts, I cut them in half into thinner cutlets. Saute in just a wee bit of butter and/or oil to brown, then smother with salsa. Cover and simmer until chicken is done. Remove lid and top with shredded cheese. CoJack works good here, as does Cheddar. Then melt the cheese, either by putting the lid back onto the pan, or by popping the pan under the broiler. Serve over/along side rice, with or without black beans. Sometimes I add a second side of fresh corn (lightly cooked and cut from the cob) mixed with halved cherry/grape tomatoes. Green Giant Niblets corn is a good sub for fresh.

It's all much easier to cook than it is to type out! BTW, welcome to DC Learning2Cook. What do you have your PhD in, if it's OK to ask.

For a quick, easy meal we like Haliski. (Polish noodles and cabbage)

Can be a side or main course by adding sausage, etc.

I don't use a recipe but, this one looks good.
