Flour tortilla, store bought pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, and whatever leftovers for toppings. Bake until the cheese is bubbly.

Doritos, shredded cheddar, salsa, sliced jalapenos, refried beans if I have them. Microwave for about a minute and a half.

Of course, as an Italian, my first definition of "simple meal" is a pasta dish with a simple tomato sauce. Another really simple yet amazing recipe is "cacio e pepe": a dish of spaghetti (but bucatini are best) with melted butter, fresh grated cheese (I prefer pecorino romano for this, but really, any hard cheese will do), and a liberal amount of black pepper.
Yum. I use Greek yogurt on pasta, too, and it's really good. Still playing around with the seasoning.

My simplest meal is what I call Instant Chili: throw a can of low-sodium black beans and a can of diced tomatoes (both drained) into a microwaveable bowl; season with cayenne pepper, garlic, onion flakes, oregano, etc; nuke for three minutes. Works with chickpeas instead of black beans, too.

You know, I've never tried this, but it could actually work. I really love greek yogurt.

Orzo with cherry tomatoes, peppers, and onions with feat cheese. 15 minutes top and so so good.

Also eggplant sandwich - Toasted roll with pan fried really thin eggplant, then some tomato slices, peppers and onions with cheese all toasted in goodness.

fried eggplant is amazing! if you like curry, bigdaddy fried eggplant can make a nice accompaniment.

i'm currently eating a homemade bacon sandwich and drinking a coffee from my favourite coffee shop. bacon sandwich = simple, satisfying comfort food
