Recipe for delicious spaghetti with Brussels sprouts and parmesan
Here’s how it works: First, boil the pasta in plenty of salted water until they’re almost al dente. Just before flipping the noodles, scoop out 2-3 ladlefuls of the starchy pasta water and set aside.
Then you can take care of Brussels sprouts. Cut off the woody end of the stem and remove the dark outer leaves. Now rinse the florets under cold water and cut them into rings parallel to the stem.
Remove the basil leaves from the stem and cut into strips. Chop the garlic and fry in a good amount of oil in a pan.

Continue tossing and tossing until the cheese, pasta and Brussels sprouts are well combined. If it’s not creamy enough, add some pasta water and cheese.
When everything is ready, you can serve delicious spaghetti with Brussels sprouts. Add the remaining basil to the plate and it’s ready to serve!
