Deep Filled lasagna

Half-term cheats

It’s half-term once again, but don’t start pulling your hair out just yet. We have some great suggestions for easy family meals (perfect for the friends who come for tea too), plus recipes that are simple for little hands and make perfect rainy-day entertainment.

For a hearty meal in a hurry, try Bill Grainger’s Coq au Vin, which results in a beautiful moist chicken with crispy skin, but without the traditional overnight marinading.

If you need to feed an army of children (or parents) have a look at our recipes for a deep-filled lasagne and a fabulous fish pie, perfect for making ahead of time and keeping in the freezer.
