cavatappi & brussel sprouts

I think brussel sprouts get a bad rep. They're actually really tasty, and have become one of my favorite things to eat. When I saw that Cooking Light paired them with pasta, herbs, and some bread crumbs, I practically salivated. I need this cooking in my kitchen ASAP. 

Here is the recipe... 

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked cavatappi pasta
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 12 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2/3 cup organic vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces pecorino Romano cheese, shaved (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and transfer to a large bowl; keep warm.
  2. 2. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; swirl to coat. Add panko to pan; cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently.
  3. 3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add Brussels sprouts to pan; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onion and garlic; cook 3 minutes or until onion is tender and the Brussels sprouts are lightly browned. Add broth and next 5 ingredients (through pepper). Cover and cook 2 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are crisp-tender. Add Brussels sprouts mixture to pasta; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese, pine nuts, and panko. Serve immediately.
