I often get stuck cooking the same meals week in, week out, so I’ve been searching for some dinner inspiration. This week I’ve focused on pasta as any pasta is always a winner with the kids in my house.

Here are 10 recipes that have been tried and tested for you by real Mums, you can’t go wrong:

1. Raw tomato sauce pasta – so easy and kids love it.

2. Meatballs – always a winner at my house.

3. Chicken pasta – quick and easy.

4. Eggplant pasta – delicious combination, easy to whip up.

5. Zucchini and lemon pasta – a winner in our house, easy and fresh.

6. Cannelloni – easy and tasty.

7. Spaghetti bolognese – easy family favourite.

8. Creamy roast pumpkin penne – sweet and creamy, with hidden pumpkin.

9. Tuna bake – tasty and easy.

10. Lasagne – easy to make ahead and even freeze.
