Easter is upon us and with it a delicious long weekend of relaxing, eating copious amounts of chocolate, chatting over a glass of wine and having an all-round good time. This pumpkin, spinach, and ricotta lasagne will have everyone scrambling back for more, plus it can easily be prepared a few days in advance, so it just needs a re-heat in the oven.

We’re not the only ones that think this with Saint Patrick’s Day being celebrated in more countries around the world than any other national festival.

Whether you’re a believer in the day of love or not, it’s certainly a great excuse to enjoy a tasty bar (or in our case box) of chocolate.
