Italian Sausage and Brussel Sprouts Dinner

Morgan Lewis


This recipe is of my own creation of foods I love. Everyone who tries it loves it! It may seem really bad for you but you just eat a few scoops of the main dish over pasta so it's not that bad. Also, you can remove the bacon and use chicken sausage to make it healthier.
