Cacio e pepe is one of my all time favorite pasta dishes. It was a natural thought to bring this flavor to a vegetable dish. Shaved Brussels sprouts get transformed when they are saute, given a pecorino shower and a pistachio crunch. Make this easy dish and let me know what you think.

Shave Brussels on a mandolin safely or chop by hand. Heat a sauté pan with olive oil. Add Brussels, sauté until slightly wilted. Turn heat off, add pepper and pecorino, toss with tongs. Plate individual servings and top with pistachios.
