What's for dinner? Meal Planning with The Organised Housewife

Pumpkin and Tuna Pasta
Ok so I have posted this one before, but we have more pumpkins than halloween at our place.  
This sounds like a strange combination but it is AMAZING!
Just grate some pumpkin.
Let it cook until soft in a frypan with some olive oil and onion.
Add a tin of drained tuna.
Add a splash of lemon juice and pinch of salt and pepper.
Serve mixed through your favourite pasta!

Chicken Pie
We love chicken but I have been searching for some different ideas as to what to do with it!
I use a bread base and puff pasty top with a chicken, leek and cream filling.

Mexican Meatballs

This is a new one for us.  I was looking for a few cost effective, child friendly recipes and this one appeared!
My kids love corn chips and I just know they are going to love this!
It would also make a great lunchbox treat!

Spinach and Ricotta Canelloni
This weeks meat free meal.
The trick here is to buy the Latina Fresh past sheets.
Line them with your filling and then roll!
Sure beats trying to fill those fiddly tubes!
This one is great for leftovers!

Morrocan Lamb Casserole
I love using the slow cooker!  
Just through the lamb and veggies in with one of these slow cooker Recipe Bases and you have a quick and easy meal!
I serve this one with rice.

Beef Fajitas
An easy build your own dinner!
These kits were on special for $5 at Woolworths!
