Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
In an oven-safe, medium sauté pan, cook the pancetta over medium heat for about 10 minutes until the bacon fat renders and it begins to brown. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the shallot, salt, pepper, toss to coat and place in the oven.
Remember to wear oven mitts, and occasionally give your mixture a stir while baking. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts are tender.
