    Does anyone have any ideas of what to put with pasta and sauces to make them more exciting and more of a meal?

    With the tomato one I add hot sauce, onions and cut up quorn sausages but I love the cheese and broccoli/cheese, leek and ham but I can't think of anything to put with them :confused:

    Thanks :eek:

    Hmmm you could add ham and mushrooms into it, peppers, softened onions (to do this you put chopped onions into a hot pan with a bit of water and put the lid on), you could grate some of your HeA of cheese over the top.. possibilities are endless really x

    Chillies! But if you're going to all that trouble why not just use ordinary pasta, it's far cheaper.

    Sweetcorn does wonders and a little bit of chilli flakes too, gives it that kick. mmm, I add that to pasta and sauce, or passatta with Smoked Paprika as well. Very nice x

    Thoroughly recomende getting loads of "Lazy" jars, garlic, ginger, chillies, these are great to experiment with. I usually put load of pepper to heat it up a little too.

    I usually fry some veg in fry light, add chopped veggie sausages and stir in some soy cheese. Makes it a bit more interesting and filling :)

    I love the tomato and herb one on a jacket spud with a HE worth of grated parmesan on it, it's fab. Also with the cheese and broccoli one, it sounds obvious but chuck more broccoli in with it - just some chopped fresh florets :)

    I think that i shall have to be more adventurous and see if i can get it a bit more tasty. I thought that i would have one as i was hungry and i wanted to just have something quick.

    I have the tomato and herb pasta and sauce, made up with just water, add tuna and sweetcorn.
    Just made it for my lunch tomorrow, added sweetcorn, and some cherry tomatoes. Yum..

    With the broccoli and leak, add more veg with it.
    when made up with just water, its just as yummy and syn free, and dont have to use your healthy extras.

    I had the mild cheese and broccolli one and I added cooked cauliflower. Then add cheese (your HEX) and turn into a pasta bake. It was gorg, plus I got some of my superfree food at the same time (which is very difficult for me :cry:).
