Don't you just love a bargain!!

I really do love it when I cook a meal, but then you get many out of one meal. So really it's 2 for 1 but even better!

So the other day I made a homemade tomato sauce. Picture below. Then I decided to do spaghetti Bolognase and then all I needed to do was add the tomato sauce in it.

But what was even better was that there were loads of tomato sauce leftover, and I had the mince meat leftover as well!!!

So for the rest of the week I am going to a chilli but with a twist, and use quoina instead. Then another day I will have the leftover spaghetti or even use wholemeal pasta instead. If I don't get chance I will just freeze the rest.

I am just pleased that I can get many ideas from just a basic tomato sauce

And finally this can also count towards at least 3 of five portions of fruit and vegetables a day

It's packed full of carbohydrates, fibre, protein and vitamins.

Not bad for a meal that costed me £5 for the ingredients
