Meatless Monday :: Rigatoni with Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Toasted Bread Crumbs
My go to ingredient when I need something uncomplicated, fast and delicious is PASTA of course!!! Pasta is so versatile, I mean there are like dozens of varieties of my favorite carb and you can throw just about anything in there and make a meal of it. This one came to be not by some weekly meal planning but it just happened to be what I happened to have on hand. After not having power very much in the last couple weeks I have been minimally stocking the fridge, it is depressing throwing away loads of food due to spoilage!
This meal comes together quickly, is simple, flavorful and budget friendly! Brussel sprouts I think get a bad rap but they can be very yummy, I promise!!! These brussel sprouts are simply roasted with olive oil, breadcrumb, salt and pepper. Then tossed with sautéed garlic and al dente rigatoni! Served along side of it is a simple salad. This pasta can be made exactly the same way with cauliflower in place of brussel sprouts for another wonderful variety!
