-Chicken & pesto pasta (it's good the next day cold for lunch or as a side for dinner too), or any type of pasta/sauce combination.
-mini quiches; 5 minutes prep and 20 cooking time, serve with chips and salad.
I also freeze lasagnes and other pasta dishes for nights that I don't have time to cook/can't be bothered.
I always have chorizo in the fridge. It keeps for a while, cooks fast, and I can throw it in practically anything to "beef" it up. E.g. add it to:
- pasta with tinned tomatoes, garlic, onion
- frittata with onions and veg
- pasta with haloumi & cherry tomatoes
Coles frozen pizza's are a winner in my house and can't complain for 2 for $7

Most pasta dishes
We have a few leftover meals or pre-cooked things ready in the freezer. We have 1 regular late night a week and we either get something from the freezer or I pre-cook it and leave it in the fridge.
Otherwise we sometimes do a quick stir-fry with either veggies I chopped up beforehand or frozen veggies. I also do a quick curry with frozen veggies + an onion and a BBQ chicken.
Tinned spaghetti...dinner. Is. Served. Lol
