I never realized this before, but I love brussels sprouts. I don't think my mom ever served them when we were kids, which was probably a good thing. A few months ago, I decided I wanted to try them and that started my love for brussels sprouts.
I had a major craving for them lately, but we didn't have much to serve them with. We did, however, have a thing of gnocchi (okay, who am I kidding, being the pantry stocker I am, we had 2 things of gnocchi). Having watched an episode of Giada De Laurentiis recently, I took her idea of making Cinnamon Buttered Gnocchi.
The brussels sprouts were easy - boiled them, cut them in half, and sauteed with garlic and olive oil. We seasoned them with garlic vinegar.
For the gnocchi, they were boiled, drained, and sauteed in cinnamon flavored butter and sprinkled with additional cinnamon and sugar.
The two dishes don't quite go together, but they were good. We probably wouldn't make the Cinnamon Buttered Gnocchi again because of all the butter and lack of flavor, but they were good for a one-time try.
