Recipe for delicious spaghetti with Brussels sprouts and parmesan
How it works: First, boil the pasta in plenty of salted water until almost al dente. Just before cooking the noodles, drain 2-3 tablespoons of the starchy pasta water and set aside.
Then you can take care of Brussels sprouts. Cut off the woody end of the pod and remove the dark outer leaves. Now wash the flowers under cold water and cut them into rings parallel to the stalk part.
Remove the basil leaves from their pods and place them in the pods. Mince the garlic and then fry it in a pan with a good amount of oil.

Mix until cheese, macaroni and Brussels sprouts are well combined. If it’s not creamy enough, add some of the macaroni and cheese sauce.
