Roasted Brussels Sprout Carbonara - One of the great things about this pasta is how quick and easy it is to make, taking only as long as it takes to roast the brussels sprouts to pull together making it a great light meal for a weeknight.
This pasta is an ode to the mountains of fried zucchini Gwyneth Paltrow ate at Elio's, an Italian restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side, growing up. Here, she adds the crispy zucchini slices to spaghetti that's tossed with shredded Parmesan cheese (which adds texture to the dish) and plenty of olive oil and basil.
