If you are a Brussels Sprout lover and you are a bacon lover then you need to make this part of your meal plan this week. If you like pasta, then you have yourself a trifecta. This pasta started as a way to use up some veggies that were going to go bad. Then, of course, I had to add bacon because Brussels Sprouts and bacon need to always be together. Always.
Fry up some bacon, then use some of that super flavorful bacon grease to cook up the brussels sprouts and get that nice char on them. Olive oil, spices, pasta and then the key ingredient to bring it all together: parmesan. So good.
