Here Are The Comfort Foods Lidia Bastianich Can't Get Enough Of
Lidia Bastianich told Eating Well that her go-to comfort foods are "baked pasta with cheese … gnocchi, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and cheesy baked chicken wings."
However, when it comes to seasonal utility, Bastianich advocates for incorporating cabbage into dishes, as it's a great way to get extra veggies into your diet over the winter.
"Cabbage is a fall or winter vegetable," she tells the outlet, "and if you just prepare it in the pan with oil, onions, and crumbled sausages, it makes a great dressing for pasta."
In September 2023, Bastianich released her cookbook "Lidia's From Our Family Table to Yours," which is filled with accessible comfort food classics.
