Ingredients

  • 8 oz medium shells pasta
  • 8 slices bacon chopped
  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Garnish:
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Parsley
  • Chopped bacon

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta per package directions, aiming for al-dente. In the meantime prepare the brussels sprouts.
  2. Place a large cast-iron skillet or dutch oven or medium heat. Once hot, add the chopped bacon and cook until browned. Leave about 2-3 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan, and remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Add the brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Cook on high heat for about 3 minutes, cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until tender.
  4. Add minced garlic, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups heavy cream and bring to a simmer.
  5. Stir in the dijon mustard and nutmeg, then sprinkle the top with the parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
  6. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  7. Drain the pasta and stir it in the cooked sauce.
  8. Remove from heat and serve garnished with bacon, red pepper flakes, and parsley.
