Brussels Sprout Pasta

I was going to do a bunch of recipe testing and give you something super foodie approved, but then I realized that my favorite recipes are really just good ingredients smushed together in a big bowl and eaten with a spoon.

This is my current go-to dinner. I like a 50-50 mix of veggies and rosamarina pasta. I often substitute zucchini squash for brussels sprouts and I use copious amounts of parmesan.

(And I can’t decide between brussel sprouts or brussels sprouts, so I’m going to use both with no rhyme or reason.)

Brussels Sprout Pasta

  • brussels sprouts, as many as you like, chiffonaded (is that even a word?)
  • pasta, as much as you like of any variety that you like
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • good quality grated parmesan to taste
  • coarse salt & ground pepper to taste

Toss brussel sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and broil until soft. Cook pasta per package directions. Combine brussel sprouts, pasta, butter, and parmesean cheese. Plate and sprinkle with more parm and a little coarse salt. Read a gossip magazine and eat with spoon.

The squash version. I can't decide which is my favorite.

    Well, I’m definitely going to try this recipe; I got the ingredients yesterday at the grocery. I don’t think I’ve EVER even tried brussels sprouts and I’ve never heard of Rosamarina pasta (I bought orzo). Looks very yummy. I’ll let ya know what I think. Thanks for sharing recipe.

      Yeah! Please let me know what you think. I had it for dinner again last night.

      And I’m 99% sure Orzo and Rosamarina pasta are the same depending on where you live.
