This is a fab twist on this pasta favourite!

Im jealous that you grow your own Brussels sprouts, and this is a fantastic makeover of the traditional pasta dish.

so glad youre able to save the brussel sprouts...its really rare to ever see the entire stalk like that.

What a cool recipe with a twist! NIce.


Last Sunday, I went out in the snow, after dark, and harvested a small stalk of Brussels sprouts to serve to old friends from Hoboken. They are adventurous in their food consumption and great culinary creators......but alas, no room for a garden of their own. Those were delicious, but like your own crop, on the small side as I planted them in September. It was worth the wait!


Who could resist this? Even a dedicated Brussels sprouts hater would cave! It sounds incredible!


Man, I would love this. I assume small and frosted and defrosted didnt mean they lost any flavor. You didnt indicate that it did. That seems so funny to me. I know nothing of gardening, but I will be getting a house in about 18 months and Im going to be asking for advice!


Peter M, T.W. and noble pig - Thanks! Though, Im thinking it was quite generous to call it CarbonaraRavenous Couple -- The stalks are showing up more and more in the market, though usually not this late into the season (winter). Pegmal -- your friends are lucky that you could share with them. Reeni - never understood how someone could dislike brussels -- especially the frost bitten which are sweeter.Melissa -- all the could actually improved the flavor -- made them sweeter. And surprisingly, the texture didnt suffer either.
