I’m continuing with the Thanksgiving side dishes — or every day side dishes — today. (Technically, this post was supposed to go live on Wednesday, but we lost our Internet during a storm in the middle of the night, and I wasn’t able to access this here blog until Wednesday afternoon.)

So. Anyway. Brussels sprouts.

I’m digging vegetables in all forms these days and because there’s something so delicious about a simple recipe done right.

These Italian Brussels Sprouts are exactly that.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts are a super easy side dish for a regular old weeknight meal or a fancier holiday one, and when you add prosciutto and parmesan, they just sing.
