This classic Italian meal gets its spectacular flavor from a few simple techniques and late-winter ingredients. We’re crisping up hearty, potato-based gnocchi in a pan of browned butter (or butter heated past its melting point, for deliciously nutty taste). Then we’re adding bright, tangy Meyer lemon to cut the richness of the browned butter sauce. With earthy Brussels sprout leaves and woodsy thyme, this dish is as comforting as it is gourmet.
