Ingredients for Ravioli with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon


I made the Ravioli with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon for my family on Sunday, and it was easy and delicious! I did some of the prep work while my 2-year old was napping, I cooked the bacon, chopped the pecans and sliced the Brussels sprouts, which made throwing it all together at dinner time a breeze. I should note, that frying the bacon in a skillet was a bit messy, but the crispness it added to the dish was worth the mess.

After just 10 minutes of cooking time, the final dish was delicious. I loved the texture of the Brussels sprouts with the crumble of the bacon. And while I enjoyed the pecans in the recipe, I can also envision using toasted pine nuts. I may just try that the next time.
