    Ok here's one that's actually a classic in our family. One of those that sounds a bit weird but tastes fab. Very yummy and healthy cos mostly it's veg.

    SMC (sausagemeat & carrot) for 4 ish:
    1 can chopped tomatoes
    6 sausages ish (less if you want to lower the calories), each cut into about 4 pieces.
    6 large grated carrots peeled & grated
    one medium-large onion chopped
    spray oil
    bay leaf
    salt & pepper to taste
    herbs & spices (suggestions, ginger/chili pepper, coriander)
    Pasta.

    Fry onion and sausage chunks until browned.
    Add in all other ingredients and simmer for 20-30mins (longer the better though really)
    When 10mins away from serving, boil pasta til cooked.

    Voila. Guestimate of about 250cals per serving of sauce plus whatever pasta you have. If you use less sausage it significantly knocks the calories down though.
