It’s an Easter Dinner Weekend Special

Easter_Bunnies_Think_SpringAre you hosting Easter dinner this year? Think it’s time to try something new for this early spring feast. Perhaps you’d like to bring a taste of Italy to your table. What could be better than a wonderful Italian dinner?

If you need a little help, here are a few suggestions for a festive Easter dinner:

How to start? If you’re cooking Italian, then there is no better way to start than artichokes. If you can find big, beautiful artichokes in your supermarket, whip up a batch of my Artichoke Leaves with Shrimp. If you can’t find artichokes (or they are looking a little tired), go with a jar of oil-packed artichokes and make my tasty Artichoke Crostini. Round out the hors d’oeuvres with a bowl or two of Roasted Almonds and Spicy Olives.

What about dinner? To keep it simple, enjoy a salad for your first course. Radicchio, Fennel, and Arugula Salad is delicious.

Then it’s on to the main event. Since you’re going Italian style, skip the ham and go with lamb. Roll the grill out of the garage and try my Grilled Boneless, Butterflied Lamb. Unless you’d rather go with lamb chops. You might want to give my Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon-Mint Yogurt Sauce a try. Even if the local crop is a few months away, as far as I’m concerned, asparagus is an Easter staple. You can’t go wrong with my Asparagus Risotto. It is delicious with grilled lamb.

And for dessert? Nothing says Italian like Tiramisu.That said, most Italians love chocolate. Who doesn’t? Perhaps you’d like to give my Chocolate-Orange Tart a try. it is delicious.

Have a lovely weekend and a Happy Easter! Bon appétit!
