Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipes from Today’s Show: Easter Feast

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: Every year my family and I enjoy a big spread for Easter that’s full of seasonal ingredients, and this year I’m using two of my favorites: lamb and artichokes. I’m roasting a leg of lamb that’s been butterflied and rolled up with a filling of savory artichoke hearts, pancetta, and Parmesan cheese filling. I like to serve it on a bed of peas and wilted spinach and drizzle it with my famous fresh mint sauce. On the side, I’m using the leftover artichoke leaves (the hearts were used to make the filling) and steaming them until they’re tender; they’re perfect for dipping into a lemon-garlic aioli. More from the show.

  • Dear Lucinda, I wanted to let you know I cooked your roasted leg of lamb recipe and for Easter dinner with my family. It was a hit!!! Everyone loved it. The flavors blended perfectly. I prepared the pancetta and parmesan cheese and artichoke hearts a day ahead and sent it to my butcher who de boned and tied the lamb for me. I made the mint dip sauce and the steamed artichokes and artichoke dip, roasted potatoes with steamed peas and spinach, and a mint and green tea punch. I plan to save your recipe for another time.

  • P.S. I found your recipe in Martha Stewarts magazine. :-)

  • I am a senior who thoroughly enjoys your show and
    watch it daily! You are an amazing woman; not only
    are you a super chef, but with your personality
    you could be on TV whether you cook or not!
    You remind me of my days cooking for my three
    children; it brings back warm memories! Your family
    is fine! I think your oldest son will follow (at
    least part time) with your culinary love....Long
    live the Quinns! I was born in NYC.. mjm
    I now live in Green Valley, Arizona.... :-0 Hugs!

    I was brought up in New York City so I can really
    relate...
