    Do you like lentils? You can usually sub them for mince in recipes. I use tinned browned lentils in things like pasta bake & spag bol, dried red lentils for things like soup, dahl, stews, etc.
    They are cheap-so perfect if you are on a budget.

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
    Can you please tell me how much of everything you use for the curry sausages as I'm going to give them a try this week I think.

    you can bulken mince recipes up with red kidney beans or red lentils, and try turkey mince is very nice and not at all fatty and even kangaroo mince or sausages

    another cheap meal is soup, keep all left over cooked vegies from the week and freeze them each night and at the end of the week make soup or even a stir fry up with it, Stir frys are good for using up vegies and usually any dish with rice pasta aor potatoes make the meal go further
    sausages are also a good cheap meal you can have the meat and veg or you can cook them then slice them and put them in a pasta dish.
    Quiche is also a good one usually bacon carrot onion zucchini flour and eggs.
    Or fish I buy the aldi frozen skin on fillets for 9.90 and they are decent sizes and they are quick cooking

    I use red lentils in a lentil bolognaise sauce.
    I boil them first and then cook up a pasta sauce using celery, onion and carrot.
    I cheat and use a jarred sauce, then add the lentils once drained.

    It tastes great and makes the sauce more 'bulky'
    My kids like it mixed with the small pasta shells and some grated cheese stirred through it.

    Another recipe I make with red lentils is a VEGGIE LENTIL SOUP.
    With red lentils, carrot, onion, celery, zuchinni, sweet potato, can of diced tomatos, vegie stock, garlic, salt and pepper.

    Serve it with some homemade damper to make it more filling.
