Isn’t everything better with bacon?? That’s really what makes this dish! This Caramelized Brussels Sprouts and Bacon with Pasta recipe is VERY similar to Bacon, Cabbage, and Noodles but a tad more “sophisticated.” It’s so yummy that I’m drooling as I write this post! :) You want leftovers? Well then this is the dish to make! I promise you that everyone will certainly enjoy it! :) ENJOY!
Brussels Sprouts and Bacon with PastaPrint Recipe
- 1/2 lb pasta
- 6-8 slices bacon, chopped
- 1/2 lb Brussels sprouts
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/4 c heavy whipping cream
- 1/4-1/2 c Parmesan cheese
- freshly ground pepper
Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon in a heavy skillet set over medium-high heat; once the pieces are crisp, remove them with a slotted spoon and set aside leaving the drippings in the pan.
Add the butter to the skillet and then the Brussels sprouts; cook them for 5-7 minutes, tossing as needed and seasoning with salt and pepper, until they are soft and starting to turn golden on the edges.
Reserve 1/4 cup of your pasta cooking water when you drain the pasta, then and add it to the skillet along with the cream.
Add some of the reserved pasta water if it seems dry, and toss to combine.
Top with Parmesan cheese.
