Roasted Brussell Sprout and Sausage Pasta

Well Hi!  Its been over a year since someone last posted.  We can all thank pinterest for that. :)
I ate at a fancy Italian restaurant a few days ago and had an incredible brussel sprout and pancetta pasta dish.  It was pricey though, so I thought I could re create it for a more decent price.  Well I did and the flavors WIN!


1 package fresh brussel sprouts- trimmed and cut in half
2 TBS olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled but kept whole

Mix above together and roast on a sheet cake pan for about 15-20 at 400 until sprouts are crispy outside but tender inside.

While roasting sprouts,  cook:

 1 pound pasta in salted water, reserving 1/4 cup water for later.

In large skillet combine::

2 TBS olive oil
1 cup assorted colors of bell peppers chopped
1/2 an onion chopped small
2 cloves minced garlic
1 package of turkey sausage, sliced

Sautee until veggies are tender and sausages have started to brown on the outside.

Add everything together in skillet and add::

1/4 cup reserved pasta water
1/2 cup grated (fresh) parmesan cheese
2 TBS butter
salt and pepper to taste
