1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Teaspoon sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2 Italian sausage links, meat removed from casings and broken into small pieces
3 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut off ends of Brussels sprouts, pull off any discolored outer leaves, then cut in half.
Mix the sprouts in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
Pour the sprouts onto a baking sheet lined with foil.
Use your fingers to break up the sausage meat around and on top of the sprouts.

Continue to cook, until crisp and golden on the outside and tender on the inside, about another 10 minutes.
