Penne with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

From the collection
Serves 2 to 3

Introduction

Sure, the list of things that go well with bacon is a long one, but Brussels sprouts have got to be near the top.

Ingredients

10 oz. penne rigate
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into ½-inch pieces
cups frozen Brussels sprouts, thawed and halved lengthwise
~ Salt and pepper
½ cup chicken broth
½ cup (lightly packed) freshly grated Parmesan

Steps

  1. In a large skillet, cook the bacon in the olive oil until crisp. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate, reserving the fat in the pan.
  2. Raise heat to medium-high and add the Brussels sprouts. Cook until lightly browned, sprinkling with salt and pepper, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the penne in boiling salted water. Drain and add to the Brussels sprouts along with the bacon and Parmesan. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
