If you're feeling lazy/short on time or cash the dolmio tomato pasta bakes are great ($3) plus some pasta (70c) and if you want frozen peas/carrots/corn ($3 If you don't have them on hand). Being that the last 2 are staples I usually make this when we are poor and pay just 3 dollars for the sauce.

Is it just me or is quality of mince damn ****tttte these days ? Everything I make with mince is fatty!
We do mince alot too but with French onion soup broth and various veg. Another easy one is curried sausages. Keens curry powder chicken stock (i use cubes as its cheaper then liquid stock) sausges, onion ,veg of choice (i do broccoli cauliflower carrot peas corn) and if needed flour to thicken. Cost $20 but feeds two adults 2 kids and freezes 6 extra portions for another time i don't feel like cooling from scratch lol. Healthy....hmmm maybe not but tasty, filling and cooks an awesome amount
To make it go further you can also do some rice with it
My family love tuna pasta
Tin of tuna 425g $3-$4
Jar of salad cream $2.50
Penne or spiral pasta $1
Cook pasta then add drained tuna then stir in salad cream
Not the healthiest but not too bad you can add corn kernels as well for something different
We get 2 adult serves 2 kids and enough for dd1&dd2 to have some for lunch the next day
I hate it though
