After the excesses of the Festive Season, we are now well into the longest month of the whole year: #JanuWorry.

We've collected 10 days of recipes to get you through to Pay Day, using cheaper cuts of meat, vegetables and lots of dried goods from the back of the cupboard. Plus we added two bonus dessert recipes at the end. 

When we're scratching in the back of the pantry, there are bound to be a few bags of pasta languishing in the back. Make this easy chicken and spinach pasta faster than you can say "debit orders".
