Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage, Roasted Sprouts

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   Low-fat
Servings   4-6
Preptime   50 min

Ingredients
1 lb. fresh brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, sliced in half
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1 lb. orecchiette
4 chicken sausage links, sliced into 1/4 inch thick coins
5 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
1/3 cup pesto
Parmesan cheese, for serving
 

Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together brussels sprouts, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, salt and pepper. Gently stir until well-combined.
Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then spread the brussels sprouts on it evenly. Roast for about 20-30 minutes, stirring once partway through, or until they are crispy on the outside and cooked on the inside. (My batch of tiny sprouts only took about 12 minutes to cook.) Remove from oven and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium- high heat. Add the sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until nearly-browned, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic, and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant and the sausage is browned.
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. (I begin heating my water while preparing the brussel sprouts, and added the pasta to the boiling water just after beginning to cook the sausage.) Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water (reserving 1/4 cup pasta water), and then toss together the pasta, pesto, cooked sausage and garlic, and brussels sprouts. Add in some of the reserved pasta water if needed for extra moisture. Serve warm, and sprinkle with freshly-grated Parmesan cheese.
