Hello ladies, I'm looking for some cheap yet healthy and hearty meal ideas. My DD (3) isn't fussy when it comes to veg etc so more the merrier. Think I've just got in a rut of cooking the same stuff and I'm getting very bored!!!

I added broccoli at the end too and it was delicious!

Roast dinner on a sunday and leftover meal on the monday (mash topped pie is a fav here).

Cottage pie

Paninis grilled in the George grill with salad.

Tray bake - any meat with loads of veggies/potatoes and different seasoning or spices. Cajun chicken and veg works very well!

Pasta bolagnaise bake

Macaroni and cauliflower cheese bake (add bacon and redonion for a bit more flavour and ciabatta chunks on top for a bit of texture).
