Looking for simple recipes

As the title says, i'm looking for some simpler recipes to try. I really enjoy cooking, though i'm not that good. I'm trying to help my wife by taking over some of the cooking.

So post up some things you've made.

Smack your lips instead.
Try this super simple pasta and bacon recipe.
The final result is great.
Cook up a package of spaghettini. Do not overcook. It needs to be really al dente.
While it's cooking:
Fry up about 1 lb of bacon till it's pretty crisp.
Remove from pan and chop into smallish bits.
Drain most of the fat out of the pan.
Fry up a finely diced medium to large onion in the rest of the fat till golden (med heat).
Add a few pinches of thyme (don't overdo it), and some salt and pepper to taste.
Fry that for a little bit then add the pasta and the chopped bacon and mix it all very well.
(I usually chop the al dente spaghettini into bite sized pieces first)
Let that fry on medium for a couple of minutes stirring as required.
At this point you may want to add a little more thyme and seasoning if required.
Now crank it up to maximum head, throw on some freshly grated parmesan (the more the merrier), stir and then let the bottom noodles start to crisp a little while the parmesan softens over everything. An occasional stir and taste won't hurt at this point.
Serve with some fresh chopped parsley sprinkled over the top.
Goes really nicely with a green salad and home made vinaigrette.

My easy chicken cheese tortellini soup recipe,

Boil a handful of chicken bullion and whole chicken then remove the chicken and allow it to cool, de-bone in bite sized chunks and throw it back in the pot with the same water/broth , throw in your veggies of choice, season (mostly kosher salt for me) and cook to your liking. When its all done put a bag of frozen cheese tortellini in the pot full of soup and cook as directed on the bag,,

Guaranteed to be the easiest and best tasting chicken soup you have ever had!

here is a simple chicken stoup I make all the time.
Quick Chick and Noodle Soup Recipe : Rachael Ray : Food Network

Can you make Chili? Hell that is easy. Ground beef red kidney beans tomato sauce caned diced tomatoes and chili powder some cumin and a bottle of dark beer salt and pepper. Put it in a dutch oven and let it simmer till done. Oh fry the beef first.

Here are 100 Rachael Ray recipes most are easy but allow more prep time as you are learning to make them. I try to prep everything first then cook it.

Here is an Alton Brown one.
