Serves 4

3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

8 ounces Italian sausage, casings removed (more to taste)

Red chile flakes to taste

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound Brussels sprouts, shredded in a food processor or coarsely chopped

  1. Prepare the Brussels sprouts and set aside.

  3. Add the garlic, chile flakes and season well with salt and pepper. Continue cooking another minute or so.
  4. Add the Brussels sprouts and wine and cook, stirring frequently, until sprouts are tender but still crunchy, about 10 minutes,
