Some of the top Lidia online recipes for Italian cooking include sweet bows crostoli, apple strudel and olive oil mashed potatoes. Some other good recipes include grilled sea bass, yeast cake rolls and pasta primavera.
To make Lidia's olive oil mashed potatoes, place 1 pound of scrubbed Yukon gold potatoes in a saucepan with enough salted water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil for 15 to 30 minutes until they are fork tender, and then drain the water and allow them to slightly cook. After peeling the potatoes, mash them using a food mill, and mix in 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Make grilled sea bass by combining 1/2 cup of olive oil, 4 sliced garlic cloves, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and 3 tablespoons each of minced Italian parsley and fresh lemon juice in a bowl. Set the sauce aside, and whisk together 4 crushed garlic cloves, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste for the glaze. Brush the glaze on 4 whole sea basses, wrap the tail in foil and grill the fish for 25 to 35 minutes. Turn the fish during the grilling time, brushing them with more oil throughout, and serve them with the sauce.
