For lots of people brussels sprouts can be nightmare, because they remember how these lovely little cabbages were boiled to death. But there are so many ways to cook these small cabbages, such as this recipe, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, red wine vinegar, pine nuts and parmesan add tons of flavor into these sprouts, and baking develops layers of tangy flavor. There is no reason for you to dislike this recipe, we have been making it for times, and every time we get more addictive by the delicious flavor!
