So here's a dinner that literally took 30 minutes to make, and was so delicious and light. All you need is the following:
1/2 package of your favorite pasta
3 sweet Italian sausages
1 bag of brussel sprouts
1 shallot, chopped
2 slices of Panchetta diced (or bacon - not everyone
keeps Panchetta in their fridge!)
crushed red pepper
salt and pepper to taste
French's Fried Onions (to sprinkle on top)
While it is sizzling away, I clean and cut the brussel sprouts into fourths. Place in a roasting pan and toss with some olive oil, a little crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper.
Next, remove the casings from the sausages and crumble on top of the brussel sprouts.
Place in your oven and roast for about 10 minutes. Stir everything and roast for another 10 minutes. That's it. While this is roasting, cook your pasta and drain.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese.
Spoon over your pasta and add the French's onions.
