If there were another name for Lidia's family, it would be the gnocchi family. They love making them together and eating them. Lidia starts with a butternut squash gnocchi that is as soft as a feather and served with a velvety sage and butter sauce. Next, she prepares a marinated bread of chicken seared with shiitake mushrooms, rosemary and sage. Her sauteed earthy Brussels sprouts are made with pepperoncino, garlic and walnuts. They are nutty and spicy.
