Brussels sprouts are high on my list as one of my very favorite vegetables. Considering I grew up in the 80's where virtually every kids show mocked the Brussels sprout, I never had really had them until I was adult. But now they reign as one of my top veggie choices and I am constantly roasting them, tossing them in salads, and looking for new ways to utilize the lovely Brussels sprout.
Lately I have loved working this yummy veggie into pasta dishes. It adds the perfect amount of earthiness and paired with lemon, Parmesan, lots of garlic, and red pepper flakes - this pasta dish is packed with flavor. Try to get the sprouts to caramelize a bit during cooking to add just a touch of sweetness to the dish and if you like things spicy, add some extra red pepper flakes.
