 anything with pasta is good or having something simple like mac and cheese, a veggie and hot rolls as your side dishes.

stir fry!  I bought a giant bag of stir fry veggies at Costco for $6, some brown riceat trader Joes for $3 and that's 3-4 meals worth of rice for my family of 4 and at least 12 meals worth of veggies.
