Super Simple Recipes for Broke College Kids

Rishub | Sep 28, 201901:20 PM     15

I just started my second year of college, and I am now living in an apartment without a meal plan. I can cook some basic foods like pasta, chicken breast, chili, and rice fairly well, and it works out because they're not too much of a time commitment. But I've been eating the same four foods for a month now and I think variety is well overdue. Do y'all have any suggestions on what someone with very little time can cook? I, and my fellow sleep deprived college friends, prioritize time over taste unfortunately, so as long as it's more edible than Dining Hall food, I'm happy.
