I need my easy week night go-to meals.

Super-simple recipes that I can throw together effortlessly when I'm losing the battle to chaos on the home front.

Here are 3 made-with-love ideas just for you that are healthy, budget-friendly and that can be on the table in a jiffy.

1. Spaghetti with speedy chicken meatballs

This is a funky little number, it supports a quest to eat less red meat. It's lighter and healthier but still delivers on the flavour and comfort food elements, without breaking the bank.

Nice neh? Try out his great recipe.

2. Bacon and egg gnocchi

I call this my 'kind-of Carbonara'. It's a fail-proof and fuss-free meal that is exquisite in its simplicity.
What's not to love about big bang for your bucks in the form of crispy bacon bits and plump gnocchi wrapped in silky cream? Then topped with a halo of softly boiled egg and a scattering of Parmesan?

I simply adore this recipe, so easy and madly yummy. Try out his great recipe.

3. Chicken cottage pie  - This cottage pie is healthier by using sweet potato and chicken mince.

- Sweet potato is lower in GI than regular potato, and adds a delicious but mild sweetness to the overall meal.
- Using chicken mince is healthier too. Make this ahead of time and freeze or refrigerate and then just pop in a pre-heated 180C oven about 15 minutes before you'd like to eat.
- To make your mixture go a little further, add in extra vegetables such as grated courgettes or carrots, or even a can of baked beans.
Try out his great recipe.
