I do either toast, mini pizzas (frozen pita breads - I pick them up whenever they're reduced) cover with tomato paste & sprinkle with cheese, or just a pasta with jar sauce. Either on it's own or chuck in whatever veggies are in the fridge for some extra nutrients.
Doing the pasta tonight actually as I'm on my own & cbf cooking for one!

* tin baked beans/spaghetti and toast
* eggs and toast
* cheese on toast
*As someone else said 'Latina' type pasta with jar sauce
* tin soup and toast ( too bad if you don't like toast! Lol)
*sausages, not very healthy but easy... With a little veg or salad.

Tacos is a good fall back meal-you can add a bit of tomato/avocado/grated carrot and feel virtuous.
Omelette is a great option as you can chuck in anything and egg is good for you.
The other good one is 'baked bean hotpot'. I fry up bacon, mushies and red capsicum, add a couple of tins of baked beans to heat then stir through baby spinach at the end. Add cheese and you've got protein, vege and dairy!
All meals are ready in 5-10 minutes and require minimal chopping. I wouldn't stress about takeaway though! Friday is takeaway night here nearly every week!!

I'm having one of those nights tonight! I told DP to take care of himself and DSS and I always have a couple of lean cuisine/weightwatchers meals in the freezer for myself when I don't feel like cooking. I don't have my kids tonight but if I did then they would get toast with baked beans or scrambled eggs, something like that.

Yep usually pasta here too. You can actually get ravioli/ tortellini that is freezable and a jar of long life pasta sauce is always a good option
DD also likes cold pasta with tuna, mayonnaise and corn, like a tuna pasta salad.

I keep some healthy but quick meals in the fridge - fresh ravioli & fresh quiche. The quiche is great cause you just pop it in the oven and it's yummy .
My favourite pantry meal is tuna pasta:
2/3 standard packet of pasta
tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce
tinned tuna (large tin)
If you want to just pop it in the oven put it all in the oven & add 2 tins/jars of tomatoes/pasta sauce instead of 1 and the pasta will cook - takes about 40+ minutes at 180 degrees, or cook it for 5 minute blocks in the microwave (lid on) until it's done.
When it's close to cooked (or if you use cooked pasta to start with) top with a mixture of cornflakes, cheese & melted butter - yum !
