    All things really worth having require some work... Especially when it comes to homemade pasta!

    But yes, I agree tinned baked beans are good enough, if the sauce is tweaked. But you need to buy decent quality ones, not the 'value' range shite, and also not necessarily Heinz, as IMO you're paying over the odds for a brand name.

    We usually buy Sainsbury's own brand reduced salt and sugar ones, which are every bit as good as Heinz. Most supermarket own brand ones are fine. Don't get the ones from Lidl or Aldi though, as they are cack, simply because Germans don't eat baked beans!

    Their brown sauce is the same But their tomato ketchup is excellent.

    I tweak just about all ready made foods I use. Seems the obvious thing to do.

    Like buying a basic frozen pizza and when I get around to cooking it, adding butter, extra tomato puree, thin sliced tomatoes and mushrooms and more cheese. I only buy the cheese and tomato variety by the way, not being keen on anchovies, olives or ham or pepperoni, etc.

    As I said before. These are worth a try. They're a sight better than most.

    Butter on a pizza, Geoff? Rather you than me! And there's usually too much cheese on British-style pizzas for me, so I always scrape some of it off, as I don't like them to be too stodgy (the real ones aren't).

    However, I'm with you on just buying the Margherita ones and adding more and/or better ingredients than would normally be included. Although, I also like adding some (good quality) spicy salami, chilli and black olives, and perhaps some anchovies, as I like strong flavours

    Not for me, mate. It's not a patch on good old HP, or the better quality own-label ones, from Sainsbury's or Tesco.

    I actually wipe it across the sliced tomatoes. It helps them cook without drying.
