I'd take fresh pasta. Quick, easy and filling.

In the past I have made Bol sauce and frozen it then put it in the cool box. Once arrive at the give then just need to cook pasta and heat sauce.

Really lazy but surprisingly tasty option : M&s tinned chicken curry

We used to have many snacks in the car when undertaking long drives too, so unlikely to be starving on arrival!

Te driving through France and we have done this for nearly 20 years. Please allow 50m per hour overall - 5there will be fast bits and slow bits and it takes longer than the guide books say. Make SuperU your friend and fill up when you see one (cheapest petrol). Buy BNBNs en route. Take a litre of frozen milk and it will ne defrosted when you arrive. Our holiday first night staple used to be pasta and pesto, follows by angel delight, sachets of hot chocolate are good too.
