Three and a half cheers for those tiny cabbages that are aces in both flavor and crunchy texture: the Brussels sprouts. This pasta combines the sprouts, thinly sliced for the best bites, with slightly spicy sausage, an homage to the classic combination of pork and cabbage. Thinly sliced garlic, crisped to perfection, and a white wine cream sauce round out a meal that will have your entire household singing “hip hip hooray.”
