This makes a filling and enjoyable meal for 4 from a few cheap ingredients - even more so if you grow your own courgettes and have a glut to use up. Add fresh herbs, eggs and parmesan-style cheese for a wonderful vegetarian recipe.
Classic macaroni cheese, with the addition of bacon and mushrooms, for winter comfort food that's cheap to make and a real pleasure to eat.
That classic sauce - Fiorentina - made with cheese and spinach comes into play here then is used to top hard-boiled eggs, a quick, cheap and easy vegetarian supper. Serve it with rice if you're really hungry, or crusty bread.
'A simple but sublime tart' is how Delia describes this lovely tart, which is another mouthwatering way in which to enjoy asparagus, coupled with cream, cheese and eggs. Even the pastry has Cheddar in it for extra flavour!
This was Delia's first televised recipe, shown in September 1973 - and is as good today as it was nearly 40 years ago, a quick, easy and cheap lunch or supper dish that can be adapted to any number you like.
