Why does ArcGIS Pro create so much GUNK!?

Attached are 2 screenshots (before and after) of a project folder. 


When I create a new project there are 5 files/folders associated with my project.


I open the project and run ONE geoprocessing tool (Excel to Table) and all of the sudden there are a bunch of extra files/folders in my main project folder (14 in total).


Are these extra files going to be generated each time I run a GP tool? A bit cumbersome.
