Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.
  2. Heat a deep skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil, three turns of the pan. Add the bacon and render for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and chili pepper and stir for 1 minute. Add the shredded Brussels sprouts and season with black pepper. Toss to lightly brown; season with nutmeg, thyme and lemon zest. Once the Brussels wilt and lightly brown at the edges, add the stock, lemon juice and butter; reduce the heat to low.
  3. Salt the boiling water for the pasta. Drop the pasta and cook to al dente; reserve 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water. Drain the pasta and toss with the sprouts and a little starchy cooking water. Remove from the heat and toss with the cheese; serve immediately.
