It's so nice to make a meal which takes literally 20 minutes (actually 20 minutes, fellow crap cooks will understand the frustration of recipes saying they take x amount of time and it somehow ends up being double due to crap cookness) and tastes lovely, isn't complicated, laborious etc.
I'd be very interested in any similarly easy meals (especially those which would do for 2 people, well 1.5 really...)
Or get some of those McCain jacket potatoes. Cook, then scoop out the flesh. Mash with cheese, spring onion, maybe some bacon and and egg yolk. Stuff back into the skins & pop under grill or in oven for 5-10 mins until cheese is melted & a bit crispy. Lovely with sausages or chicken drumsticks.
2 rashers bacon 1 red pepper deseeded and cut into four 1 red onion peeled and cut into 6 pasta 3 tbsp mayonnaise 2 tbsp bbq sauce
Put the red pepper and bacon on a baking tray. smother the red onion in olive oil then onto baking tray too. Roast until bacon is crispy and pepper starts to char. Cook pasta. Slice pepper and red onion. Mix everything together.
This is my 15 minute meal when I cba to cook. Put pasta on to boil. Olive oil in frying pan, chuck on diced chorizo, spring onion, chopped cherry tomatoes and and green veg (usually broccoli or sugar snap peas). When its cooked through add a spoon ful of water from pasta pan to make it saucey then toss into drained pasta. Loads of black pepper and parmesan and eat.
Put 1" milk in a medium sized saucepan, add 1tsp mixed herbs and a few grinds of pepper. Bring to boil and simmer a pack of Fish Pie Mix for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make mash from a packet or frozen
When the fish is done, take out most of the milk then stir in a big handful of peas and half a pack of ready-grated cheddar. Put in a ceramic dish. Top with mash and more cheese. Oven at 180 ish for 20 minutes ish, or can be frozen/popped in the fridge for later (cook in the oven for a bit longer though so it's properly hot in the middle)
