Do you love easy recipes too? Who has time for tons of ingredients? Not me!

  1. Busy Day Soup @Simply Stacie

Busy Day Soup is perfect for those busy weeknights. It’s quick to make and requires little effort. Who loves easy recipes? Rich and savory broth, tender pasta, and loads of veggies and beef in each bite. 

2. Leftover Rice Pudding Souffle @Sew Historically

This leftover rice pudding souffle is delicious comfort food, quick to make and perfect to use up leftover or overcooked rice.

3. How To Make Risotto @The Kittchen

The thing that I love about risotto is that it is made with two basic ingredients that you probably have in your pantry: rice and broth, plus a touch of butter and salt. Then you can add in any cheese or vegetables that you might have in your fridge. It is the ideal meal to prepare when you “have nothing to eat” at home.
