I am always looking for new ways to use Brussels sprouts. People always claim they had Brussels sprouts once and hated them, but I have converted several people with this recipe. I think the bacon helps. For kids or people who claim to not like Brussels sprouts, try shredding them to tone down the flavor a bit.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook and stir until bacon begins to crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard 1/2 the bacon fat, leaving bacon in the skillet; stir in rosemary.

  • Stir mushrooms, salt, and black pepper into bacon mixture. Add Brussels sprouts; cook and stir until mushrooms and sprouts are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour reserved pasta water into bacon mixture; add linguine and Parmesan cheese and toss vegetables with pasta until thoroughly mixed and heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
