    Fresh pasta with butter and lemon juice and chilli flakes. If I have garlic I add that. Or some sage to the butter while I brown it.

    I buy a bbq chook and make a quick salad. Or make a salad platter, boiled egg, pieces of raw veges etc- the kids love it! Homemade pizza but instead of making the dough just use pittas. Omelette-yum and healthy!

    We do bacon, eggs, beans, hashbrown. Maybe not super healthy but quick and easy.

    I do the ravioli thing too, but I buy packets from a pasta shop and have them in the freezer, then I do a quick sauce.
    Quiche or fritata where I basically throw whatever in with eggs and bake.
    I have frozen fish and chips in the freezer.
    I pick up a bbq chook with salad.
    Or I get grilled fish from the fish n chip shop and at home have frozen veg and make rice.

    Some sort of meat and a basic garden salad.

    So it might be steak, sausages, chicken schnitzel, fish, etc etc... whatever it is, I just serve it with the most basic garden salad. If it looks a bit scant, I put a slice of buttered bread on the plate too (I used to do some oven chips, but prefer not to these days).

    All I have to do is grate some carrot, tear some lettuce leaves, chuck in some cherry toms, chunks of cheese and some cucumber. Then there's a bunch of premade dressings in the fridge if anyone wants them.

    I cook up meals in batches to freeze as well - we have lasagne, ricotta and spinach canelloni and ratatouille with cannellini beans.

    Or, if I'm REALLY lazy - I chuck some chicken nuggets in the oven and steam some frozen veg.

    Another simple one I do is a 'cheaters parma'- I just lay out some chicken thighs in a baking dish and cover with a jar of pasta sauce and cheese, and chuck it in the oven for 40 mins or so. A frozen garlic bread goes on the side and either oven chips or a salad

    Sassy, how does your cannelloni freeze? I do the same one but with chicken mince in the mix. I froze the stuffed tubes that wouldn't fit in the dish once, but when I cooked them they were watery and the filling shrunk. Do you cook yours first?

    Nah, I've frozen them uncooked. They seem to last okay?
