Weekly meal planner: Easter

Murdoch Recipe Article Lead - narrow
Hot cross buns.

Hearty mid-week meals include a hearty minestrone scattered with sausage chunks, a fragrant green curry (make the paste from scratch or pick up a jar if you're pressed for time), and cute ear-shaped pasta slicked with creamy mushroom sauce.

Don't forget the fish on Good Friday - our recipe collection includes whole snapper and classic fish 'n' chips plus different ways with prawns and calamari.

Saturday is all about warming autumnal dishes, with pickled mushies, spiced lamb cutlets, silky pumpkin puree, and Stephanie Alexander's fluffy rhubarb gingerbread sponge pudding.

On Sunday, we've got your Easter feasting covered - check out our recipe collection for inspiration, from slow-cooked lamb shoulder centrepieces, to kid-friendly Easter baking projects.
