I'm thinking ahead to "back to school" when combined with working I tend to get in late and have to provide a nutritious supper ASAP. I normally cook ahead and freeze BUT our meals tend to consist of the following:
Chicken or beef casserole
baked pots and quick fillings ( oven on timer !)
Pasta with homemade tom sauce
i stick loads of veg in and kids are not fussy eaters.
Can anyone add some new ideas I can freeze and re-heat or else quick suppers I can produce in 20 mins????
A quick sauce for pasta is to fry up some onion and bacon (I use veggie bacon or mushrooms instead) then add some dried chilli flakes, lots of black pepper and a packet of cream cheese; dilute it with milk to the consistency you want, dunk on pasta and slather with parmesan. I often pop some frozen peas in too to give it a vegetable component.
Another real quickie is pizza made with pitta bread and served with salad.
