Spaghetti con cavoletti di Bruxelles e Pancetta


Another pasta dish with autumn flavours. I remember reading a recipe similar to this some time last year. The Brussels sprouts and bacon were the main ingredients and thought they went well together. I do not have the recipe and am improvising.

For two
200 g spaghetti
150 g Brussels sprouts, stems cut out, halved and rinsed
75 g pancetta or bacon, chopped
black pepper, one small dried hot chilli pepper, 1 tbsp chopped chives
2 tbsp grated Parmesan, 1 tbsp olive oil.

Set the pasta to cook and prepare the Brussels sprouts and bacon while the pasta is cooking.
Put the chopped bacon on a cold pan and heat it up. Add the Brussels sprouts once the bacon starts sizzling. Add the chives and chilli. Let cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
Pour the pasta into a colander and the to the pan. Turn and add the pepper and cheese. Serve immediately.
