Every student has those busy days when you have to grab a protein bar for a breakfast on the go and you skip lunch for a last minute cram session in the library. By the time you get home at the end of the day, you’re tired, you’re hungry and Easy Mac just isn’t gonna cut it. Luckily for you, these satisfying and flavorful dinners take minimal time and effort.
