I’m joining some of my favorite bloggers today to bring you everything you need to create a wonderful Thanksgiving, from the recipes to the tablescape, we have you covered.
I’m sharing a side dish recipe that you’ll definitely want to add to your Thanksgiving menu this year. It’s full of delicious goodness like roasted sweet potatoes, feta, and cranberries. And how could I leave out the brussel sprouts? I mean, they’re obviously having a moment right now, so I like to add them anytime I can get away with it.
It’s coated with a delicious poppy seed dressing, I’ve been having the leftovers for lunch all week and I added a little chicken for protein. But, it makes a perfect side dish to accompany your Thanksgiving turkey.
- 12 ounces pasta
- 1 pound brussel sprouts (trimmed and halved)
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, ½ inch dice
- ½ c pecans
- ¼ c crumbled feta
- ¼ c dried cranberries
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- Dice sweet potatoes and trim and half brussel sprouts, toss in olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet.
- Roast for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
- Meanwhile, cook pasta to al dente, drain and place in a large bowl.
- Brown the butter on the stovetop. Cook until it is just browned, don't let the butter burn, you only want it to change colors, then remove from heat.
- Mix all other dressing ingredients together, set aside.
- Add roasted vegetables to the bowl of pasta.
- Pour dressing over top and mix well. You may not use all of the dressing, depending on your tastes.
- Add the remaining ingredients and toss to coat.
