Fish and chips
sausage and mash
Pasta bake

These are our favourites, all slimming world versions obviously!

I love many variations of crustless quiche

My fav is eggs, cottage cheese with chive/onion and little bits of smoked salmon. Bloody lush with a load of veg on side and lots of black pepper.

My kids like them with mushrooms and ham. Or chicken and broccoli.

If your DH likes things with mince (I'm assuming from your OP) then try making a chilli (you can do it without the beans if he doesn't like them or just take a portion out for him before adding them) with lots of grated carrot and courgette. If you let it simmer long enough they just 'melt' into the sauce so they're undetectable but you've had your speed foods. We're with rice or on top of potato wedges.

Cheeseburger pasta on the slimming eats blog

Cajun chicken pasta

Chicken jambalaya is a favourite in our house too. I think it's speedy jambalaya from the SW recipes we use.
