As a carb aficionado, I’m dedicated to making pasta almost every day of the week. But every once in a while, I gotta switch it up from my go-to Rao’s Arrabbiata sauce (shoutout to my coworker Sheela for the rec) with butter and occasionally some garlic. That’s how I found my new favorite pasta recipe.
Famously (amongst only Kitchn editors), I am known to be a vegetable hater. Currently, I eat five: Brussels sprouts, bok choy, scallions — and I ran out, so I guess it’s three now. So when I saw that my (former) work auntie Amelia Rampe once made Yasmin’s lemony Brussels sprout pasta on her video series “Rampe It Up,” it looked too easy and good not to make!
How to Make Lemony Brussels Sprouts Pasta
Coming from a person who has to FaceTime her mom to figure out how to use a can opener, I can confidently say it’s truly simple to make and takes barely any time. The pasta water comes to a boil while you prep your Brussels, lemon, and garlic. As the pasta cooks, so do the Brussels. Then you mix it all together, adding lemon, cheese, and pasta water. It results in a pasta dish that’s lemony, tangy, bright, and coated in a silky sauce. To me, it’s the epitome of a low-effort, high-reward meal that gives me things I love: pasta and Brussels sprouts.
