the only reason i didn't give this 5 stars is because i tweaked the recipe quite a bit to accommodate my family's taste: I used 1 # fresh brussels sprouts, cooked orzo (rice shaped pasta) cooked in chicken broth instead of rice; 2 oz cooked bacon instead of the proscuitto and real butter & whole milk for the white sauce. definitely not as healthy as the original, but awesomely good! I also recommend cutting the sprouts into quarters - much easier to eat that way. i will definitely be making this one again!
Great side dish! I did use 2% milk instead of the 1% and I used the ham instead of the prosciutto. We all enjoyed it! Thanks Kanzeda
