I just wanted to share a recipe with you that is quick, easy, and really tasty. Chances are your family will like this. Assuming, of course, that they are not opposed to eating brussel sprouts!! When the brussel sprouts are shaved, their taste is not quite so severe. My own kids like them this way. Another suggestion – Whole Foods 365 is the best tasting whole wheat pasta around. Again, my family will eat this and not some other brands of whole wheat pasta. Usually I get the shaved brussel sprouts at Wegman’s. If you can’t find them, you can use a mandoline to shave them.
1 pound whole wheat fusilli pasta
2 cups shaved brussel sprouts
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp. olive oil
1. Boil pasta until al dente.
2. Saute the brussel spouts in the broth and 1 tbsp of olive oil for about 15 minutes or until softened.
3. Place the brussel spouts in a bowl. Sprinkle some Parrano cheese flakes on top (this helps them to melt a bit). Put the pasta and 2 tbsp olive oil on top and mix together.
4. After mixing, sprinkle more Parrano cheese on top.
5. Serve immediately.
