You either love Brussel sprouts or you hate them. If you’re like me, a lover of sprouts, you’re going to love this simple side dish that’s seamless to make. In 25 minutes you have a fabulous vegetable dish, that’s delicious and satisfying.
I roasted Brussel sprouts, chestnuts, shallots and some pancetta with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Right before they’re served, I sprinkled some freshly grated parmesan cheese. If you want to kick it up further, use grated gruyere or fontina.
This simple dish is easy enough to make for a week night dinner and delicious enough to be a part of a Holiday meal.
- 1 lb. Brussel sprouts, washed & trimmed
- 1/2 lb. chestnuts, roasted & shelled (you can use jarred. If so use 2 jars)
- 8 small shallots
- 4 oz. pancetta, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F. degrees
Place all the ingredients in a baking dish cook for about 25 minutes or until the sprouts are tender. Stir occasionally so to cook evenly.
