There are some nights when you just can’t. When you would rather set fire to the kitchen than spend hours over a simmering pot of bolognese. We get it. But since friends don’t let friends eat popcorn for dinner, we’re letting you in on our little secret — nine mouthwatering recipes that call for just five ingredients.

And if you just need a weekday treat for one, there’s a creamy carbonara for that, too. Because it’s been a long day, and you deserve it.
