Roasted Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Parmesan

Roasted Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Parmesan

So I decided to make something with pancetta and cheese. I’m usually the one ordering a Cobb salad without the bacon and rolling my eyes every time Lou eats prosciutto. However, for some reason this week I just wanted to make a dish loaded with flavor that would be a good option for a holiday or to serve at a dinner party (realizing not everyone loves quinoa as much as I do).

I love Brussels sprouts. They are by far my favorite vegetable, and when they are crispy and roasted to the boarder line of burnt, I can’t stop eating them. I bought these Brussels sprouts pre-shredded and in 25 minutes the entire dish was done! You can easily make this recipe leaner by switching out the pancetta for turkey bacon, chicken sausage or roasted chickpeas. 🙂
