When I was in college, I did a semester in London. Our tiny flat had minimal cooking space, minimal cooking supplies, and we had no money so we couldn't buy lots of ingredients. So, my boyfriend (now my husband) sent me a cookbook called 6 Ingredients or Less that was our saving grace. This is my favorite recipe from that cookbook.
