3 quick dinner ideas with asparagus

Make the most of seasonal greens by cooking asparagus in our three quick, easy suppers. Serve it in an omelette, a fish traybake or with orzo and meatballs.

We've got three speedy supper ideas which you can make with a bunch of asparagus by combining it with just three other ingredients. This nutritious seasonal green is available from around late April into June, and its shoots can be cooked in a wide range of dishes.

Combine these vibrant green spears with fresh pesto in an omelette and top with crunchy seeds for a satisfying veggie supper. Mix with fried focaccia breadcrumbs, Greek salad and a can of sardines for a light spring traybake. Or whip up a comfortingly creamy pasta dish featuring asparagus with pork meatballs, orzo and crème fraîche.
