Lemon Zest Pasta With Brussels Sprouts

17 Jan

Last week was a brussels sprouts kind of week. After getting a large bag from Costco we had to find a lot of different ways to use these them in order to make sure none went to waste! We were craving something light for dinner and this recipe was the perfect creation. This recipe serves two.

Ingredients:
4 oz. of whole wheat pasta
Leaves of 6 brussels sprouts
1/2 cup great northern white beans, heated
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. of lemon zest
1 tsp. dried basil
2 tsp. of olive oil

Directions:
1. Cook pasta according to directions. When one minute is left, add the brussels sprout leaves, drain with pasta.

We ended up adding some extra steamed Brussels sprouts to the top of our pasta. Not necessary but totally delicious 🙂
