Even if you are not a huge fan of brussels sprouts, give this a try . When brussels are in season , cooked until just tender and finished off in the fry pan they are really quite mild , with a 'nutty' flavor. The chilli is optional but if you like spicy ... keep it in !!

  • Looks very yummy. Something to try very soon!


  • Not a big fan of brussel sprouts but it sounds lovely


  • Brussels sprouts are not a very popular veg, but they’re one of my favourites, great to see them in a recipe


  • An interesting pasta dish and l love how l haven’t tried it!


  • Brussel sprouts might not work for us, it will be left on the side of the plate by most.


  • I actually cant wait to try this! We used to eat brussel sprouts as kids but my husband doesn’t like, surely mixed in like this he will be willing to give it a crack!


  • Anything that can get my family to eat different veggies is great. I think that a lot of people have had their Brussels sprouts boiled too long.

    • Exactly! they dont need to be boiled and boiled !


  • what a great way to use an under utilised vegie of the brussel sprouts – my husband loves brussel sprouts and I think he would really love this recipe so thank you very much for sharing :)

    • I agree – an under utilised vegetable and they are so good for you and so yummy. Happy to eat a bowl full of them with a drizzle of butter. I have also eaten them with roasted pine nuts – yummy!


  • Thanks for a recipe with brussel sprouts. I love the taste of brussel sprouts and this recipe looks truly tasty.


  • Great combo love chilli pasta it looks like Arabiattaa
