    La Dilettante's Note:

    Needing a good autumn green veggie to go with the classic spaghetti-and-tomato-sauce for tonight's supper, I searched on this site and found John Skrable's "Brussels Sprouts Americano"...I gave it a good rating, but made so many changes that I decided I'd post my own!! Now, I came late to Brussels sprouts in life...school cafeterias and my own mother boiled the poor little cruciferous things to MUSH, and, ugh. I've discovered they're so very delicious if a little "crunch" remains. So, I don't pre-boil or blanch. Try this---you'll like it (I hope!) Side note: I don't make this in large batches, as it sort of loses its fresh "oomph" when reheated the next day. Hence the smallish quantity.

      What a fabulous way to prepare Brussels sprouts!! The flavors and textures work perfectly together, and the end result is totally delicious! I scaled the servings down to one (DH isn't a Brussels sprouts fan); used 18 frozen petite Brussels sprouts (briefly cooked, then drained--I didn't have any fresh ones), a 50/50 mix of butter and olive oil, and part of a scallion for the onion. When everything was cooked, I put it on top of an al dente serving of whole wheat pasta (farfalle) and added the garnishes. It made a great lunch! Next time I'll try to make this with fresh Brussels sprouts, as I'm sure that's better, but it really is quite good even with the frozen kind. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing it, La Dilettante!!
