    Pasta n Sauce is the best thing EVER on a green day when i'm in a rush.

    Adding a tin of sweetcorn makes it taste even nicer :)

    Any other ideas for jazzing up a sachet of the already-lovely Pasta n Sauce?

    So you don't use any of your milk allowance, try adding a small amount of Buttery smash in powder form and mix well, gives it a nice smoother taste. Sounds mad but nice. xxx

    oooo i love the chicken and mushroom one, i always add left over roast chicken, it goes lovely. Never thought about adding sweetcorn, might have to try that, I like it if you leave it for a few mins and it goes dry on top but lovely on top, tastes better with milk and butter but i'm going to try the buttery smash idea :D

    aah these blasted pasta n sauces is it me or does any one else find this problem .............. you know the tube varieties chick mush, brocolli I have to stand for about 5 mins bashing 2 tubes together to get the powder seperated from the tubes other wise you end up with tubes still with powder in after they have been cooking, they taste mingin :jelous: I would love them to put the powder in a sachet (like the noodles) there feel better now :p x

    SW Quiche:
    1 packet of pasta and sauce
    1 packet of Batchelors savoury golden rice.
    3 eggs, beaten
    1 tub of low fat cottage cheese (i use the chive one)
    You can add other options to this, i add 1/2 can of mixed beans in tomato sauce, or you can add mushrooms, onions e.t.c.
    Sliced Tomatoes.

    Cook pasta and sauce in one pan and cook rice in another, when cooked mix together adding extra ingredients if you want at this point and pour into a large flan dish, add cottage cheese to beaten eggs and pour over pasta/rice base.
    Cook in oven at about 190 for about 30 mins or until set. About 10 mins before cooked top with sliced tomatoes.
    Quiche is great for nibbling on when hungry.
    Synfree if using the pasta and sauces that are free, Macaroni cheese one is 1 syn, this one gives it a sort of cheese pie taste.

    I really want to try one of these quiches but I can't get my head around the cottage cheese thing. I don't like it cold. Is it nicer when you cook with it?

    Batchelors Pasta n sauces is a lovely filling dish, comes dried with a dried sauce that you add water, says milk and water on packet but you don't need to use the milk, All except the following are free: Carbonara is 1/2 syn, Cheese & Leek is 1 syn and Macaroni is 1 syn. Give them a go, They are free or these syns only on green days different syn value on red. Hope this helps.

    I can take or leave cottage cheese mainly leave it, but iv'e tried the quiche without it and much prefer it with, you hardly notice it but gives a nice texture to it.

    pasta in sauce make fab quiche

    I found this is best made with a pasta in sauce that has cheese flavour in it.

    make the pasta in sauce with water as normal.
    let it cool a little, in the mean time put 3 eggs 450g cottage cheese in a bowl and mix add to the pasta in sauce bake in the oven for approx 30 mins at 190c

    this is fab and i eat it hot and cold.
