Servings: 6 servings


  • 8 ounces pasta
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces Black Forest Ham sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup raw pine nuts
  • 1 pound brussel sprouts thinly sliced
  • grated parmesan for serving


  • Boil water with 2 tablespoons salt. Cook pasta al dente. Before you drain the pasta, scoop out about 1/2 cup of salted pasta water, reserve for later.
  • In large saute pan, melt butter and oil over high heat. Add ham, garlic, and pine nuts. Cook over high heat, stirring only occasionally, until everything just starts to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add brussel sprouts and mix well to combine. Continue to cook, stirring only occasionally, and reducing heat as necessary to avoid burning, until the brussel sprouts begin to wilt and brown.
  • Remove from heat and add the cooked and drained pasta. Stir to combine. If mixture needs to be moistened, add some of the salted pasta water (a couple tablespoons at a time) until the mixture is perfectly moist.
  • Top with grated parmesan. Serve hot. Enjoy!
