Wholemeal Cous cous - soaked in chicken or vegetable stock for 10 mins... again add some fresh chopped veg or......

cook couscous as above, but instead of raw veg, cook courgettes, onion, mushrooms and peppers in a stock cube and then mix with the cous cous. Mmmm

Need more ideas because i dont plan on taking sandwiches that much!!

pasta with pesto?

Edit - could just look at supermarket pasta sauces, an also look at the lunch time pasta pots they do?

dolmio stir ins are bearable

chuck in whatever you like?

its pasta

You can easily add cooked chicken and sweetcorn instead of tuna and sweetcorn. Or chopped up peppers and some chicken with a bit of mayo. Are you after cold pasta dishes or ones that you can heat up?

What about stirring in some coronation chicken sauce with a bit of cooked chicken and a handful of currents.

Have you thought about taking the mini pots of houmous, with chopped carrots, cucumber and celery, and a lovely fresh roll?

Or how about some sushi snacks - I buy one small pack of vegetarian sushi a week - mmm love it

i like that!! im gonna buy a post of coronation chicken to stir in with some pasta!!

Thank you!!

How about spaghetti bolognaise - or pasta bolognaise? You can make up a whole packet of mince and dolmio and freeze it in portions to take to work!

Chicken with mushroom and onion and balsamic vinegar - winner!

Have a look at the salad dressings and suces next time you are shopping and have a think about what cold meat/fish/ veg you can add to that and some pasta...sorry I know it's obvious but you may not have thought about it.

Chilli con carne mixed with pasta is nice (hot or cold!)
