      This recipe was a great hit at my Christmas dinner this year(2009). Even the 3 guests who told me later that they did not like Brussels sprouts raved about them. I left out the pepper flakes this time but will add them next time I make them. So quick and easy to make!

      I am SO sorry that I cannot give this a good rating. Between Toolie's recommendation and my knowledge of what a good cook Rita is, I thought this would be a good surprise. However, for me, the combination of the sweet amaretto with the sprouts just did not work. The sauce I felt had no relation to the vegetable--merely served to cover up the taste of the Brussel sprouts, rather than to combine with that taste to create a new whole.

      What an excellent recipe. Spicy and sweet. Brussel sprouts are not my favorite vege, but they taste like candy with a kick with this recipe. YUM!
