Ciao tutti!

This side dish is a fixture on the menus of most trendy restaurants right now, and that's because they don't disappoint! Considering we have a delicious balsamic vinegar of our own to work with, we thought we'd bring you a recipe for brussels sprouts that's perfect for the season.  It's a very flavorful side dish and maybe a different way to prepare your vegetable than you're used to! Let's break it down:

This recipe makes about 6 servings.

What you'll need:
  • 1.5 lb fresh brussels sprouts
  • 3 oz. diced pancetta
  • 1/4 cup evoo
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare your brussels sprouts by trimming them and cutting them in half the long way.  

Step 2: In a small mixing bowl combine your pancetta, olive oil and salt and pepper and then mix in your brussels sprout halves.

Step 3: Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay out your halves.  Bake for about 10 minutes before flipping all the halves over to cook the other side for another 10-15 minutes or until tender.  You also want the pancetta to be cooked thoroughly.  

Step 4: Remove from the oven and drizzle with your balsamic vinegar. Buon appetito!
