I like brussels sprouts A LOT. So how come you never see them on the site? Because I like them very simply prepared. Browned in a frying pan but still crunchy in the middle, top with salt or parmesan, done. I cant really post that. Especially because someone already did it perfectly. Here is a quick recipe I came up with the other day that combines brussels sprouts with fresh pasta and everything else it plays nice with. Bacon, Balsamic, a little cream. The fresh pasta is a nice contrast with the crunchy sprouts, and I think a necessity for this recipe.
Fresh off the stalk.
A dramatic shot of the sprouts.
Shredded up in the food processor.
I made the pasta short to match the rest of the ingredients.
This recipe was so easy that the pasta wasn't annoying to make. I made this whole recipe on a weeknight in an hour and 15 minutes!
The shredded sprouts.
Bacon cooked and garlic in.
Followed by the sprouts. These cook on high for about 5 minutes. Don't overcook them! Drop the pasta because it only takes about 2 or 3 minutes. Place the pasta strait from the boiling water into the pan with the sprouts. Add a few glugs of balsamic, and about the same small amount of cream.
This doesn't look too appetizing, but it is very tasty. Put a bunch of parm on top! I do feel like it needed something else, but I am not sure what. It was still tasty and we ate a ton, but it could be perfected with a few tweaks.

Just follow the pictures! It isn't too hard.
