Roasted Brussel sprouts with Giusti Balsamic vinegar, parmesan, pancetta and pine nuts
- 5oog Brussel sprouts halved or quartered
- 2 tablespoons Cenzino organic extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
- 1 tablespoon diced pancetta
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts
- Giusti Balsamic vinegar for drizzling
Preheat oven to 220º, trim Brussel sprouts and cut into halves or quarters depending on size. Put sprouts in a mixing bowl and toss with olive oil.
Arrange sprouts in a single layer in a roasting pan and roast for 20 minutes, turning occasionally or until they are golden in colour and slightly crisp.
When sprouts are nearly done separately sauté the pancetta in a pan until crispy and toast the pine nuts in a dry pan until barely starting to brown.
Put cooked sprouts back into a mixing bowl and toss with Parmesan cheese. Arrange on a serving plate and sprinkle with pine nuts and pancetta.
Drizzle and toss with Guisti balsamic vinegar, serve hot.
