Burritos are a great way to stretch a pound of meat to feed 6, avoiding extra fat and calories. Good for the waistline and the wallet, too!
Chicken Sausage Chili Burrito
This hearty, family-pleasing meal is a Tex-Mex lover’s delight. Use 1-3/4 cups (425 mL) of whatever PC salsa you have on hand; you could also add 1 can of drained corn in with the beans.

Picky eaters in your family? Gently expand their palates with this comfort-food favourite that takes a mac ‘n cheese staple and modifies it slightly.
Two Cheese Spring Pizza

Spaghetti Squash with Meatballs
If you’ve never cooked with spaghetti squash, you’ll be amazed by how the cooked flesh pulls apart into spaghetti-like strands. In this spaghetti and meatball dish, it actually takes the place of pasta.
Quick Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Meatballs
What family doesn’t like pasta and meatballs? Frozen angus beef meatballs beat making home-made on a busy night. Streamline the cooking time by making the tomato sauce while the meatballs cook in the oven.
Italian Turkey Meatloaf
Shake up your meatloaf routine by making this simple turkey version. Serve with mashed potatoes and a salad.

The special presentation makes this perfect for your next romantic dinner-for-two. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.

Always keep a few cans of tuna on hand- it’s a great source of protein, reasonably-priced and infinitely versatile. Try this baked sweet potato, stuffed to bursting.
Herbed Salmon with Roasted Asparagus
