    Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and add the Brussels sprouts. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, until the sprouts are softened and most are browned. Remove from heat, transfer sprouts into a large bowl. Set aside.

    Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking oil. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 minutes, until just softened and fragrant. Don’t let it brown, or the garlic will become bitter. Immediately remove from heat and spoon garlic into a small bowl. Add olive oil and lemon juice. Whisk together until emulsified.

  • 2 Meyer lemons (see Tip)
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 1 (16 ounce) package shelf-stable gnocchi
  • 1 cup thickly sliced shallots
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ cup slivered oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Slice and seed 1 lemon. Toss in a large bowl with Brussels sprouts, gnocchi, shallots, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet.

Roast, stirring once or twice, until the gnocchi are plump and the Brussels sprouts are tender, 18 to 20 minutes.

Squeeze juice from the remaining lemon. Return the gnocchi mixture to the bowl and toss with sun-dried tomatoes, the lemon juice and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Tips: Sunny yellow Meyer lemons have a distinctive sweet-tart floral taste. Find them in late winter and early spring in well-stocked markets. You can substitute for the juice with 2 parts lemon juice and 1 part orange juice.

Organic lemons are less likely to have traces of fungicides commonly used on citrus. So choose organic when cooking with lemon peel and zest.

I would add some extra salt or you can add chopped green olives in place of the capers.
