Pasta bake? (Costs about $5 to make, usually about 2.5 meals for us)
Speghetti bolognaise? Jar of sauce for $2, pasta for 70c, $5 for 500g premium mince from coles, add some garlic bread as well for $2-$3.
Curried sausages usually dont cost that much and add some mash potato and veg?
Check out the coles website, they have some meals for under $10 suggestions?

Soup is cheap. Shop at the end of the day and check for mark downs in the meat section.

Definitely! We do it for less than that every week
Mince, pasta or rice based dishes are great. Make sure you go through your freezer and pantry to see what you already have to work with.
Some cheap meals:
Savoury mince with mashed potato and steamed veggies
Apricot chicken drumsticks and rice
Chicken or pork fried rice
Casserole or soup if you have lots of veggies to get rid of
Spinach & bacon quiche with salad
Seasoned drumsticks and veg, roasted

Although...Dp hates spag bog

Chicken breast burgers
Dominos pizza (value range large pizzas are only $4.95 each)

Agree with peanutmonkey about pasta bake - very cheap to make.
