College student looking for quick, cheap, healthy recipes?

I am living in an apartment, and I’m getting sick of eating nothing but coffee, soup, and pizza. I could really use some good home cooked recipes. What I look for are cheap, quick, easy, healthy…etc. Thanks!

    Here’s one I used to use quite often. Cheap and easy.
    Cook a box of macaroni and cheese following instructions on box. Drain a can of tuna, add that and a can of mushroom soup. Mix and stir all together. That’s it.

    Meat of your choice, fixed the way you want it. Add potatoes or rice, & a vegetable & salad to the menu. Lots of choices here.

    ****
    Spaghetti With Sauce

    1 jar spaghetti sauce, your choice
    1 lb. ground chuck, optional
    onion, chopped (optional)
    spaghetti, enough for however many you’re fixing for

    Crumble & brown meat in a skillet; drain well. Cook spaghetti as instructed below. While spaghetti is cooking heat the sauce. Pour sauce into a GLASS bowl, add the drained meat mixture, stir, cover with lid (important), place in microwave & heat on high for about 5 minutes. When spaghetti is done & sauce is heated, serve as you like. Great with a salad, garlic bread, & iced tea!

    *****
    PERFECT PASTA EVERYTIME

    1 lb. uncooked spaghetti
    1 gal. water, rolling boil

    Place spaghetti into a deep pot of boiling, salted water. The salt & excess water help to prevent sticking, & allows the starch to cook off. After adding spaghetti, return the water to a rolling boil (do NOT cover with lid). Boil spaghetti for 2 MINUTES EXACTLY, then cover with lid, & remove pot from fire, let set for 5 MINUTES for el dente (firm) spaghetti. Drain, toss with oil or butter—olive oil is best. Or better yet, instead of coating with oil or butter mix in a LITTLE bit of the sauce, because adding oil may keep the sauce from sticking to the pasta.

    The same can be done with any type of pasta. Just adjust cooking & standing time according to size & thickness of pasta being cooked.

    NOTE: 1 lb. uncooked spaghetti equals 4 servings, or so they say!   It really depends on size of the appetite!

    TIPS:
    Never add salt to pasta water, because it will make the pasta tough.

    When draining pasta in a colander heat the colander with hot water first, because a cold colander will make the pasta stick together.

    Take 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice, dump 1/2 cup of Progresso Black Bean Soup or Lentil Soup over the rice and heat in the microwave. When it’s piping hot, put grated sharp cheddar cheese over top, let it melt up, then eat. If you are on a budget, you can get four meals from one can of soup with this “recipe.” And individual portions freeze up perfectly fine. For the rice, you can cook it in the microwave; one cup uncooked brown rice to two cups water.
