Recipe: Oregano Pesto Brussels Sprouts

Eat Your Brussels Sprouts

Last night, I was trying to decide what to serve for a side dish, and thankfully Publix came to the rescue.  You’ve just got to love a grocery store that prepares simple meals to taste as you shop.
I remember seeing the word “Brussels Sprout” and immediately said to myself “Ew, I don’t like Brussels Sprouts.” But, with a little encouragement by the friendly Publix staff, I tried them and fell in love.
So much so, they were my side dish two nights in a row.  Now I want to share this simple recipe with you!
