You can feed a family of four a satisfying meal for $5 in less than 15 minutes. It’s not sexy, it’s not fancy and you may not want to serve it at a dinner party…but it is:
4. Quick to prepare.
5. Easy to conceal vegies.
5. Passes the trifecta baby/toddler/adult tastebud test.
Tuna Pasta is our ‘go-to’ meal. The quickest, easiest, mid-week meal in my cooking repertoire. It’s the meal I go to if I’m considering ordering take-away, as the ingredients are always in my pantry. Works just as well with any vegies!
1 x 700g jar homebrand pasta sauce
1 x 400g tin homebrand diced tomatoes
1 x 185g tin homebrand tuna, drained
1 packet of homebrand thin spaghetti
