  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add Brussels sprouts, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. They should still be slightly firm. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Slice the sprouts in half, and set aside.
  2. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and pancetta; cook and stir for about 5 minutes, until garlic is lightly browned. Add the remaining olive oil and Brussels sprouts. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring until the sprouts are well coated with the flavor. Season with salt and pepper, and cook for 5 more minutes before serving.

I made this low calorie and fat free. I used olive oil flavored Pam and liquid smoke instead of pancetta. The flavor was great and it is healthy!

Maybe it's because I'm so used to eating vegetables this way that I found this good, but only average. I can tell you, however, that even as an Italian familiar with pancetta, I'll take regular old American bacon over it any day! Unless you're familiar with pancetta and really like it, I think I'm safe to suggest you substitute bacon here and in any other recipe calling for pancetta. I've even forced myself to try to like it and just can't. I tried again in this dish, tasted it and started over again, the second time with bacon.

I definitely recommend adding heavy cream toward the end. I also threw in sliced mushrooms and sprinkled with Parmesan. Oh my lord, SO good!!!

This was a great recipe for brussel sprouts. The only change I made was I used bacon instead of pancetta.

I love this recipe, but I added a half a cup of half and half at the end and let it simmer for a bit. It made it even better! So creamy and still had that salty pancetta taste.

Wonderful! Next time I'm adding onions too. DELICIOUS! Oh and I used fresh proscuitto from the deli cut in 1/4 inch slices and diced it myself. Much more flavor and a lot less fat than pancetta. GREAT RECIPE

This was an excellent way to turn boring old brussel sprouts into a restaurant quality side dish. My hubby particularly liked it. A keeper.
