    I am pretty much always stocked with the stuff for baked mac & cheese w/tuna, chicken fettuccine alfredo, and homemade pizza (although if they're on sale, I'll throw a few frozen ones in the freezer and be lazy )

    Taco salad, spaghetti, baked cheesy bread dipped in spaghetti sauce, Ramon soup with potatoes, carrots, and sausage added in, and something "quick" that actually takes all day - a whole chicken cooking in the slow cooker all day. Super easy to just throw in the chicken in the morning and have a great dinner that night.

    Crock pot recipes totally count since they generally are minimal effort!

    Chicken Fettucini - Boil noddles. Saute red peppers (and onions if you like) in a tiny bit of olive oil for 5 minutes while noodles cook. While noodles saute, heat pre-cooked frozen diced chicken (or your chicken of choice) on stove until warm. Add chopped broccoli last 3 minutes to water to cook with noodles, drain. Mix with chicken, peppers, and pre-made sauce (we're going easy right??). Throw some shredded parmesan cheese on the top and your set! If I'm really lazy, I skip the veggies. It sounds like a lot, but it's maybe 10 minutes of cooking.
    Tuna Mac & Cheese - Boil macaroni noodle al dente (just soft enough to eat, but not soggy soft). Drain. Mix with can of cheddar cheese (yes this comes in a can in the soup aisle), 1/4 cup of milk, 1 Tbsp flour, 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and 1 large can of tuna (only partially drained if you like more tuna "flavor"). Add to baking dish, sprinkle bread crumbs over top (plus extra cheese if you'd like) and bake @ 350 for 30 minutes. These measurements are approximate as I just sort of dump stuff in when I make it...never turns out bad!

    Okay I want your baked ziti recipe...that doesn't seem "simple" to me??

    Deluxe Tater Tot Casserole

    2lb. ground round 1/2 tsp. black pepper
    1/2 c. finely-chopped onion 16 oz. can French-cut green beans
    1/2 c. finely-chopped green pepper 1 1/2 cans mushroom soup
    1 egg 6 slices American cheese
    1/4 c. milk Sliced mushroom (fresh or canned)
    1 bag Tater tots 3/4 tsp. salt



    Mix ground round, onion, green pepper, egg, milk, salt, and pepper. Press mixture into a slightly-greesed casserole dish, approximately 8X11 inches. Cover with fresh or canned mushrooms. Add green beans to dish; cover with mushroom soup. cover with layer of thinly-sliced American cheese. Completely cover with Tater Tots, neatly arranged in rows. Bake, covered, for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until Tater Tots are nicely browned.


    That's the recipe from the cookbook made by the staff where my mom works. Not exactly fast but simple to put together. Depending on who I am feeding i sometimes take out the onion, green pepper, and mushrooms. I have also had success with a crock pot version, not exactly the same, but cant find the recipe.
