    As much frozen veg as you can get - Onions, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, sweetcorn (I save a fortune by buying frozen instead of fresh)
    Pasta - Tons of the stuff
    Potatoes
    Baked Beans
    Mushy Peas
    Tinned Tomatoes
    Passata
    Eggs
    Reduced Fat Cheese
    Cereal
    Herbs & Spices

    This is pretty much my staple shopping list. Plenty of meals can be whipped up with this. The joy of green is potatoes and pasta. So much can be done with them and they're relatively cheap!

    haven't made it in a while but it's always lush and my OH can never tell it's a slimming world recipe ;)

    i tend to use a dollop of ff fromage frais, an egg, some parmeson and seasoning.. just keep adding until it's fairly runny, then i cook spaghetti and drain it, before putting it into a frying pan and pouring the sauce over it (on a low heat otherwise it curdles, have had this experience - not nice) with the quorn or ham or whatever meat you're using..

    so yummy and only a couple of syns depending on how much parmesan you decide to use :D

    ooops forget to add...

    keep stirring the sauce until it starts to 'stick' to the spaghetti in little bits.. does that make sense? ahhh it does to me haha :)

    no not tried the quark one.. the fromage frais always worked well for me so i didn't see any point in changing it :) think you use the quark in more or less the same way, with eggs and parmesan etc.. had a bad experience with a quark 'cheesecake' (i say 'cheesecake' as my dad commented it was more like blancmange! haha) think that put me off abit hehe ;)

    There's a 7 day student menu on the website, you might be able to get some cheap ideas from that.

    Couscous
    Rice
    Mixed pulses (tin of different types of bean and chickpeas)
    Passata
