The secret to this recipe is to cook your veg low and slow so they impart loads of flavour to your cooked pasta. Use whatever herbs you have to hand – the more the merrier!
Perfect at the end of a meal, or to wrap your hands around when you’re outside as evening cools down, the best Irish coffee uses proper coffee (not instant!), and really good Irish whiskey.

A good gingerbread bunny isn’t just for kids! These treats will make you the star of the campground. This dough is very forgiving, so even the little ones can give it a try.
The humble rhubarb has a lot more uses than just making tasty dessert pies. For this recipe, pair your rhubarb with a really fruity rosé wine with notes of strawberry and raspberry to really make the the fresh fruit flavour sing.
Make the most of seasonal figs in this refreshing and super-tasty sparkling cocktail – perfect to start your Easter celebrations! The thyme simple syrup will keep well in the fridge for a few months; try adding a dash to a gin and soda for a super-tasty evening tipple.
There’s no such thing as a bad time for a mimosa, but Easter is definitely one of the good ones! A good, classic mimosa of sparkling wine, vodka and orange juice is always delicious; for this recipe we’ve added a tiny touch of carrot juice in homage to the perennial favourite, the Easter Bunny.
This Easter classic goes down brilliantly as a dessert as well as a drink. If you don’t want to stay up all night, swap the espresso for decaf – it’s just as decadent and delicious.
These delicious crispy potatoes that are much easier to make than they look! The trick is to cut through the potato without slicing all the way through to the bottom; rest your spud on a serving spoon or on two chopsticks as a guide for when to stop slicing.
Make the most of fresh basil while it’s still in season with this tasty gimlet. Basil, sugar, citrus and gin is a wickedly delicious combination; this recipe works really well with flavoured gins like pineapple or citrus gins.
Technically a Cuban drink rather than Irish, a good mojito is pretty, tasty and definitely ticks the ‘green’ box for your St Patrick's Day celebrations!
