Easter (Pasqua) is a particularly important celebration in Italy with events, processions and religious ceremonies taking place across the country. Celebrations begin on Palm Sunday, marking the start of Holy Week, culminating on Easter Monday with a picnic shared with friends and family. Lamb is traditionally eaten at Easter in southern Italy and Puglia is no exception, where lamb is traditionally eaten with eggs and fresh peas of the season. This simple roasted leg of lamb combined with fresh peas, baby onions and black olives makes a wonderful Easter lunch or at any time. If making out of season, use frozen peas.
