Food: Cucina Povera - Pasta with White Fish and Peas

Throw some brown pasta into a pan. Drop in a couple of fish fillets. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add a handful of frozen peas and simmer for 3 minutes longer. Drain the water, add lots of s&p and some chilli oil and stir in. Empty the contents on to a plate, add a bit of grated cheddar and drizzle heavily with olive oil.

It's simple, quick, high in protein and low in cost (works out to about 50p a serving), and involves minimal washing up. My kind of meal.

A good adaptation of the above is to replace the pasta with whole grain rice, factoring in the extra cooking time and taking the cheese out of recipe.
