Fettucine Cabonara is another good one that is very filling.
They are cheap-so perfect if you are on a budget.

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.
