Goulash.  Or at least that is what I call it.  Good and filling.

Mine is hungry man helper! It has a weird name that does not reflect the ingredients. A can of pork and beans, bbq sauce, a few seasoning things mixed with a pound of browned ground meat (we use turkey) and lay some unbaked biscuit batter on top, sprinkle with cheese. Bake. Yum! Easy, ingredients are always around and low-maintenance.

I like the bags of frozen cheese raviloi.   Boil for 4 minutes and they are done.   I usually brown a small amount of meat (turkey or beef) and add that to a jar of pasta sauce.   Super cheap, quick, and easy.

I love mac and tomatoes with a little onion to it.. My mom use to make this stuff all the time for the family of 12 sometimes she would add a little ground beef or hamburger to it.. She also would do a pot of beans to eat.. not bad * northern beans.. Pickles and cheese sandwiches were nice too.
