Today easy one-pan dinner is perfect for chilly evenings. It is an incredibly quick dish where you roast all ingredients in one pan for minimal clean up and get something with lots of flavour. We used Brussels sprouts in this recipe as these mini cabbages are low in calories and very nutritious. If you don’t like Brussels sprouts, simply leave them out. Anyway, 40 minutes later, your kitchen will smell wonderful!
