A note about serious food allergies

Gnocchi are small Italian dumplings, whose name either comes from the Italian word for knot, or the Italian word for knuckle. (Both small things, but certainly not as delicious.) The denseness of gnocchi pairs so delightful with both the spring vegetables in this meal and the creamy lemon sauce. It's rich, but light, filling, but not too heavy, a knot, not a knuckle… ok, not so sure about that last one.
