Spaghetti. While pasta is boiling, brown mince and add jar of spaghetti sauce. If you have the time or the inclination, grate some zucchini and carrot into pot with mince and sauce. Easy peasy

Hotdog buns sliced in half longways
Mix chopped ham with pizza sauce in a bowl then spread mixture on buns (it is important to mix the ham and sauce, it won't be the same otherwise, trust me)
Add pineapple pieces
Sprinkle with cheese
Bake in oven
Also fajitas, fried rice, steak & steamed veg, pasta with pesto & peas...
Otherwise batch cook on weekends and use during the week (left over bolognese is yum on a baked potato!)

My standard meal formula
1) Chicken/beef/tuna (mince, breast, stirfry slices or from a can depending on what I'm making)
2) Jar of sauce - Pasta, curry or stir fry
3) Rice, noodles or pasta.
4) Whatever veggies diced up - usually onion, capsicum, carrot, garlic and chilli (jar of minced garlic and frozen tube of chilli)
Thank god for preservatives!!!
Usually takes 20 minutes max including prep.

Warm Tandoori Chicken Salad.
Slice raw chicken thigh or breast into strips.
Marinate the chicken strips in Tandoori paste, with some Greek/acidophilus yoghurt (I use Sharwood's Tandoori Paste) and marinate for 1/2 hr or more (if you have time).
*If you like your food on the hot & spicy side, marinate for longer with more tandoori paste and use less yoghurt*.
Once you have finished marinating the chicken strips, pan fry the chicken till cooked and set aside.
I make a little salad of Cos lettuce leaves or rocket and baby spinach and add some Spanish onion, red capsicum strips, fresh coriander and some continental cucumber and a little dressing for some acidity. (whatever dressing takes your fancy).
Put the chicken strips on the salad and drizzle over some Greek yoghurt or sour cream and serve with some Naan bread and enjoy!

Baked shredded chicken tortillas
Bake 2 Chicken breasts in jar of taco sauce in slow cooker for 4 hours or so. Take out and shred breasts using 2 forks. Put shredded chicken back into the sauce.
Place some of the chicken on the tortillas (like a pizza) and put some cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 5-10 mins. We eat them folded in half with topping of jalapeno chillies, sour cream and shredded red cabbage mixed with chopped coriander and dressed with olive oil and lime juice.
This is a seriously yummy recipe and even I can pull it off in a short space of time!
The chicken can be used on tacos or burritos.

Smoked salmon pasta.
Bring water to boil and cook linguine.
While that is happening, crush a clove of garlic and sauté in butter. Deglaze pan with a swish of white wine. Pour in carton of cream and bring to boil/ bubble. Stir and reduce slightly. Open bottle of passata and add about half or until happy. Stir and bring to simmer. Cook down a little. Add sliced spring onion and cook a little until softish. Add pepper, chopped smoked salmon and dill.
I can get this chopped and cooked in the time the water boils and pasta cooks.
My 3.5 year old has champagne taste. He freaking loves smoked salmon!
