These five springtime dishes are packed full of good things and take no time to put together.

The clocks go forward at the end of March, which means an hour of extra daylight in the evening (hooray!). So make the most of brighter, sunnier eves with these lovely quick and easy dinner recipes – less time cooking means more time to enjoy the early signs of summer. Winner!

It only takes 15 minutes to make this gorgeous dish of rainbow toms, fresh basil and punchy olive tapenade.

Beautiful, fragrant salmon fishcakes with chilli and ginger, and ready in just 22 minutes – delicious with a mixed-leaf salad.

You can tuck into this epic spaghetti, fresh fennel and crab meat supper in just 18 minutes. Gorgeous!

If you haven’t tried this recipe before, you’re in for a treat. Sausage, Parmesan and parsley come together in perfect harmony… in 15 minutes.

A real favourite of ours, this super-fresh pasta dish takes only 15 minutes, but you’ll remember it forever! Packed with beautiful fresh colours and flavours.
