    This is one of my favorite ways to eat Brussels Sprouts. I do add a pinch of crushed red pepper when I add the parmesan cheese to give it a little kick but other than that, I keep to the recipe. Two servings......psh. Nope. I eat the whole thing myself.  -  01 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I decided to thinly slice the Brussels sprouts and jazzed them up with some sliced, caramelized shallots.  -  31 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Darn delicious! Added crushed red pepper and substituted asiago for Parmesan and it was delicious. Quadruple the recipe for a family size I would say!  -  25 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
