    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

    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
