Brussels Sprouts Parmesan Pasta

Now that Brussels sprouts are back in season, we’ve been buying them pretty much non-stop lately here in our house and roasting, sautéing, and tossing them into salads basically as often as possible.  I can’t get enough of these little green superfoods this time of year!  But one of our favorite new recipes this past month ended up being an impromptu fusion of one of our favorite pastas (cacio e pepe) and one of our favorite side dishes (sautéed garlicky Brussels sprouts with pine nuts).

For lack of a more creative name, I’m calling it our new favorite Brussels Sprouts Parmesan Pasta. ♡

It’s a super-basic recipe that requires just 6 ingredients and comes together in less than 30 minutes.  But I’m telling you, the comfort and flavor factors of this pasta are a full-on 10 outta 10.  The texture of that thick and chewy al dente pasta is balanced with wisps of tender shredded Brussels sprouts and toasted buttery pine nuts.  And when tossed together with a glossy butter, Parmesan, garlic and black pepper sauce, get ready to go back for seconds because I assure you that one bowl of this cozy seasonal pasta is going to have you swooning.

If you feel like adding in extra protein, some sautéed Italian sausage or bacon in there would be a very, very good idea.  Or if you felt like giving the pasta more of a lemon-buttery twist, this recipe would also be delicious made instead with the lemony brown butter sauce that I used in this recipe too.  However you make it, this pasta is a great way to enjoy the season’s sprouts.  So bring home a batch, and let’s make some pasta together!

Brown Butter Lemon Pasta Recipe

Every time that I post about my husband making this brown butter lemon pasta for us on Instagram, my inbox instantly fills up with a hundred requests for the recipe.  I must admit, though, that one of my favorite things about this recipe up until this point is that I haven’t known how to make it.  Barclay always takes charge of the kitchen on our lemon pasta date nights and shoos me away to go relax before dinner’s ready anytime that I try and help.  (Yes, dream husband.)  But…this pasta is so delicious and so many of you have asked about it that I insisted on hovering behind him in the kitchen recently so that I could jot down the ingredients that he used (he never measures) to make a batch.

And I’m telling you, you guys are going to love this one. ♡

The recipe itself calls for just 5 simple ingredients — pasta, butter, lemon, Parmesan and black pepper — but the magic of this recipe is in how each of these ingredients are cooked to bring out the best of their flavors and create the most luxuriously rich and glossy brown butter lemon pepper sauce.  It’s a quick and easy recipe to follow and comes together quickly in just 25 minutes, making it perfect for busy weeknights or any special occasion when you don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen!  Barclay usually serves with our favorite green side salad and some sort of veggie that he roasts up in the oven while the pasta cooks too.  But of course, you’re also welcome to pair this lemon pasta with a protein that sounds good (I would recommend salmon, shrimp or chicken) or add in any other extra ingredients that sound good.

Bottom line, I look forward to this pasta every time that he makes it, and am certain it’s going to become a new favorite in your home too.  So grab some lemon and butter and let’s make some pasta!
