Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts


This easy recipe for brussels sprouts is one we often make, both on busy mid-week nights when we are in a rush to get dinner on the table, as well as for holiday meals when we are looking for a tasty green vegetable to round out our menus. Brussels sprouts resemble little cabbages, are easy to clean, and taste delicious when roasted.

Buon Appetito!
