How about-Absolutely Delicious, Skinny Beef and Bean Enchilada Casserole! Forget all the tortilla rolling, I’ve got a skinny twist that’s easy to assemble and really, really good. This casserole has many of the same ingredients of a classic enchilada and some updated skinny ones too. http://www.skinnykitchen.com/recipes/abs...

Spinach & cheese ravioli with ground turkey and veggies
Boil ravioli, drain and put it back the pot with some oil
Saute ground turkey with some olive oil, salt and pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and Italian spice blend, and set aside
Saute zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, red bell pepper, carrots, and broccoli with garlic (the whole rainbow!)
Mix the whole thing together in the pot you cooked the ravioli in and toss with a little extra olive oil and add some parm cheese (optional), and more spices if you choose
This meal is so easy and you can use rice in place of the ravioli, also, precooked chicken sausage is a quicker option to the ground turkey, too. I like to have mixed together meals like this, I make sure we are eating plenty of veggies that way.

How about a quick and easy recipe using a dip mix? Roasted Garlic & Herb olive oil blend dip mix can be mixed with 1 cup of olive oil to make a fantastic shrimp or chicken scampi. It is a favorites among my friends. Gourmet Creations makes them and they are inexpensive.

There is a pasta dish I make with sauteed spanich, yellow squash, zucchini, and muchrooms cooked with penne pasta and a tomato sauce. Its very delicious and healthy!

Thinly slice ur mushrooms, squash, and zucchini.
Chop an onion and garlic.
Use fresh spanich and spaghetti sauce.
Italian season, basil, and parsley.

Sautee ur zucchini, onion, and squash in olive oil. Once veggies get semi soft add muchrooms and season. Mushrooms will began to change color then add spanich. Cover for 2-3min at a time and stir. Once all the veggies r fully cooked add spaghetti sauce. Cook 5 min more storing occasionally.. Add cooked penne and stir. Bake for 20min and top with shredded cheese.

If you really want something different theb what about toad in the hole? Its yorkshire pudding base with sausages in it. typically served with veg and gravy in the UK as part of a roast.

Trying to think of any other typical english family foods.
Oh what about pancake wraps, make pancakes, leave to go cold, fill with anything you like (ie bacon cheese and onion) wrap the pancakes up the cover in a white sauce, sprinkle with cheddar cheese (or any strong ish melting cheese) and place under the grill until golden.

therer are sooo many good english recipes and us Brits only get thought of for the fry up and fish & chips lol.

Enjoy what ever you decide to cook
