  • Mine is grilled chicken with olive & garlic pasta with spinach, asparagus and artichokes sprinkled with Parmesan. It takes 20 minutes on a bad day and that is because the water has to boil to cook the pasta. You can mix up the veggies, easy, easy, easy.

  • I quick fry chicken in olive oil after cutting it in little pieces and seasoning it. Then I either fix rice or noodles and mix in the chicken. You can throw in some veggies too. Quick and easy

  • I love the pizza one. You just go buy "scone" dough or just a ball of bread dough, your sauce of choice (I do bbq) toppings and cheese.

    The chili is a bit cheaper tho. 2 pounds ground meat (I use turkey) 2 cans beans (your choice), 2 cans of tom soup, 1 stick of butter (real) and then your choice of hot or mild chili seasoning. Mix and simmer. I actually only use 1 can of soup tho and substitute diced tomatoes for the rest.
