3 Unique Easter Recipes to Try This Year
Easter is this weekend, so you know what that means: bunnies, egg hunts, and delicious food! If you're throwing an Easter party and need help coming up with some unique Easter dining options to serve with your traditional dishes, we've got you covered!
Spring Asparagus and Mushroom Pappardelle
A great side dish that pairs fresh spring asparagus with hearty mushrooms is this spring asparagus and mushroom pappardelle. It's worth the effort to find the pappardelle style noodles for an elegant touch to the dish, but you can substitute linguine noodles in a pinch. Whatever you do, don't skimp on the cheese. Reserve some of the pasta water to achieve the right sauce consistency; this is a great habit to get into whenever you prepare any pasta dish. In the end, this dish hits the right balance of vegetables, rich cheese, and decadent pasta. It's sure to become one of your family's favorite Easter meals.
For an easy, yet impressive, dessert, make meringue. Meringue is a light, sweetened, airy treat with a chewy center and slightly crispy exterior. It's a nice shift from heavier desserts, especially if the rest of your Easter dining options are on the richer side. Top the baked meringue with whipped cream and fresh berries. Consider making individual servings of meringue by piping the mixture into little "nests" on a greased cookie sheet instead of putting the entire batch in a pie pan. Your guests will be impressed and enjoy this light dessert.
Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Strawberry Sauce
Tired of traditional ham and turkey for Easter? Try making pork tenderloin medallions with strawberry sauce! The unique combination of flavors will have your guests talking for weeks to come. Pork tenderloin medallions cook quickly and serve as the perfect backdrop for sweet, ripe strawberries. If the addition of feta cheese sounds confusing, don't worry, the salty cheese adds an interesting tang to the dish. All the flavors come together well, and make for a unique main course in your repertoire of Easter dining options.
