Basic store cupboard ingredients to make a healthy, filling and tasty family favourite. Can be served with a side salad if wished. Tinned tomato soup is the secret ingredient - really adds to the dish.
Please improvise with this recipe - its not abut following the rules but chucking in whatever is at the bottom of the freezer! This recipe is low fat, high fibre and a balanced meal and only costs a few quid for the whole family. Plus everyone loves it! Keep some back to reheat for lunch tomorrow too :)

i am compiling a recipe book using food bank items for my local food bank and would like to include this or a tweak of this recipe. i will add another comment of any results. update i cooked a half measure (250g pasta etc) i used tinned veg and no cheese as this is what would be in a food parcel from a food bank. i agree with the extra tomato soup and chopped tomatoes to ensure not drying out i used tinned carrots and sweetcorn as i didn't have peas (tinned or otherwise). i only had chopped tomatoes with chilli but that gave it a nice kick and probably due to the extra volume of ingredients i got 4 portions (equivalent to 8 in a full measure). see the pictures. - 02 Mar 2018
I was disappointed with this recipe, it was really dry. Next time I will double the amount of soup and tomatoes. - 24 Jan 2017
