Pasta with Bacon and Brussels Sprouts

This turned out to be a very simple and easy dish to make. And since I only had a few ingredients on hand, namely bacon, pasta, and brussels sprouts, it was the perfect dish. If you think you don't like brussels sprouts, I highly recommend trying to cook them in this dish, because it makes them crispy and gives them great flavor. And don't laugh at my paper plate because in the place I am, there are never any clean plates.




Here's the recipe adapted from the NY Times

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
3 slices of bacon, diced
8 oz. of pasta (I used rotini, which was great for this recipe, but you could use any round tube shape)
5-6 brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese
Salt
Pepper

Directions:
1. Add olive oil to saute pan on medium heat. Add bacon and cook until translucent.

2. Heat heavily salted water and cook pasta al dente.

3. Add brussels sprouts to bacon. Add butter. Cook until sprouts are browned and bacon is done cooking. Add pinch of salt.

4. Drain pasta and add to bacon and brussels sprouts. Toss together until pasta is done.

5. Serve with pepper and some parmesan cheese.
