Some are free! They are:- Bolognese, chicken & mushroom, chicken & roasted garlic, creamy chicken & herb, creamy tikka masala, mild cheese & broccoli, mushroom & wine, tomato onion & herb. Of course this is only when made with water and no milk/butter, but you could use milk as a HEXa if you wanted to!X

^^ are these the Batchelor's ones? Beware of own brand supermarket pasta in sauces, they are not the same values as Batchelor's.
Sorry Jaylou, I should have said! Yes I was purely looking at the Batchelors ones in the Food Directory as when she said 'Pasta n Sauce' I just assumed she meant Batchelors- didn't think about other makes, but yes you're right, she'd have to be careful/use syn calculator!X

Ah, SarahP, to complicate things for you 10 fold, the officiall advice from SW is that if using Pasta n Sauce to make a quiche you do need to syn it because it's not being used in its original form, as the main part of a meal!! They say this to protect us from overdoing it! But I'm not sure how you'd go about synning it!!! Someone else mightX

Some have been discontinued. I know the bolognese one has, that used to be my fave.

Just to point out mild cheese and brocoli isn't free it's 1/2 a syn.

Hi Wendy, they must have changed that then as mild cheese & broccoli it's listed as free in my food directory (2009 edition- they've brought out a new one for this year) It's difficult to keep track of everything!!x

I know funcurls it is hard to keep track! I'm going by the syns online and it says 1/2. I only mentioned it because even tho it's only 1/2, if you have a few over the week it could add up. xx

aint it just haha!! thats why this forum is a godsend!!
Although, the way I see it, if it was in a previous book, it must have worked then, soI try not to get too stressed about things....if it worked for thousands of people in 2006...why not now? Haha.

Although I understand certain recipes change etc...but like you said, it is very hard to keep upto date on everything xx
