Are you just after dinner meals or are you also interested in breakfast/lunch/snacks etc aswell?

Are you going to be freezing them or just an idea or meals for the menu plan?

That list is rather enormous, so I'm somewhat overwhelmed, but I'm pretty sure I'm seeing (most) ingredients for

* tuna pasta
* sausage burgers
* apricot chicken + rice
* satay beef + rice/noodle

I'm pretty sure you could combine the chicken mince and filo pastry - maybe chicken and spinach triangles?

You could probably also do something yummy with the veal, pasta and some cream?

Have a look at that website and see if anything takes your fancy.

Butter chicken served with rice and mixed vege.

Fried rice (use a mince)

Homemade sausage rolls - pastry, mince (maybe the Turkey), veg

With the following ingredients - beef mince / Dolmio with Garden Veg Sauce / Bolognaise Pasta Sauce / Filo Pastry / Red Kidney Beans / Diced Tomatoes

Ideas for meals could be:
Chilli con carne
Spaghetti Bolognaise
Bolognaise Triangles using the pastry
Nacho's

If you had a couple of potatoes you could also have:
Stuffed potatoes with chilli con carne or bolognaise sauce
Shephards pie (using the mince)

Turkey chilli - 500g chicken mince, tinned kidney beans, tinned tomatoes, onion, garlic, whatever spices you like/have to taste, stir through some tinned or frozen corn and maybe some frozen spinach too? Serve with rice

All your jars of Chicken Tonight and Stirfry sauces - use chicken thighs or drumsticks, whatever frozen vegies you want, easy.

Pasta sauces can be made with beef or veal mince. Stir through whatever other vegies you want too.

A sausage bake - Fry sausages. Separately saute some diced onion, garlic, add a bit of flour to make a roux then add stock so you have a thick sauce. Stir through the sausages, add whatever frozen vegies you like. Put in a casserole dish, top with mashed potato, a bit of grated cheese and bake in the oven until bubbly.

You could make up one of the jars of cheese sauces with pasta, add lots of vegies to it and serve as a side dish to chops or frozen fish or nuggets.

Tuna mornay - I've never done it but I'm guessing you could use a jar of cheese sauce for this? Mix with tin of tuna, corn, use some frozen vegies as a side dish.

It looks like you've got a sh*t load of meals there.

Chicken & spinach in cheese sauce wrapped in puff pastry

I usually make my own cheese sauce but your jars may do the job? Great way to get spinach into people, they hardly notice!

Chicken mince - use one mixed with egg, salt and pepper, flattened out on glad wrap, a layer of spinach, then roll it up tight, leave in the fridge for a couple of hours, the unwrap. You can then wrap it in pastry or wrap in alfoil and cook in the oven. You could mix chicken mince with satay sauce and make fill pastry parcels.
