    Do you like chilli? You can adapt it to be really hot or just flavour-some. I sometimes like to have chilli and crispy pot wedges. I make a huge batch of vegy chill then freeze it so its ready on tap if I'm feeling lazy. The pot wedges are simple to do, just take a little time.

    Also you can make a tomato sauce to go with pasta, tastes so much nices than the jar stuff and you can have loads too.

    Is that helpful?

    Hiya sonban - my mum made me maccaroni cheese and jack pot last time I was home - I laughed at her for being so stupid - putting 2 huge carbs together like that... UNTIL I TASTED IT!

    Yummy.

    What about some things that you can just throw together in a slow cooker. You can do it b4 bed and when you wake up either get a portion for lunch or turn off the cooker and leave to cool while your at work, just turn it on for a bit when you get back in the evening - while your potatoes/roasties etc are cooking. I like to do stew occaisionally, chicken casseroles (mostly from a packet) but the ideas for the slow cooker are huge.

    I have just began cooking for one again, I still cook the same meals I used to when I was cooking for two - pasta, stirfrys etc - but I put the 2nd portion in a tub and take it to work with me, or freeze them (I have a freezer full of meals for when I get lazy!) I also make a big batch of soup on the weekends (leek and potato is my fave) and freeze in individual pots and if i can't be bothered, I have those to fall back on :)

    Have a look at the recipe sticky at the top of the page. You can get some great ideas there.

    I'm a big fan of Quorn mince, you could make a spag bol using it if you're not so keen on chilli. I use passata, finely chopped mushrooms and onions, couple of garlic cloves, bit of black pepper and basil. I don't eat a lot of pasta but when I do, I tend to use wholemeal for that extra bit of fibre.

    You can mix a bit of garlic puree into LF natural yogurt... I also like to add some mixed herbs just to give it a bit of colour. x
