Brussels Sprouts Fettuccine

Brussels Sprouts FettuccineI was never one of those kids who hated Brussels sprouts. I mean, I knew that I should most definitely turn my nose up at them, but the truth is, I never had them as a child. And by the time I tried them as an adult, people had figured out how to cook them in such a way that they were, like, good. Delicious, even.

Brussels sprouts are another fall food that makes me feel all cozy, and while I love them roasted, I don’t always have 45 minute’s worth of foresight. The other night, I wanted Brussels sprouts, and I wanted them now, so I sliced them up, pan-fried ’em, and tossed them with pasta and a simple garlic sauce.

So easy and delicious.

Happy cooking!
