Lemon Garlic Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Pine Nuts & Parmesan

Brussel Sprouts are one of those vegetables that as a child I would not eat. At all. I would feed them to the dog, the cat, I once stuffed them into my sock, I tried the hide them under the other food, I even tried to be stubborn, demanding that I would not eat matter what. Somehow my parents took the hint and stopped buying them. Then as an adult I had them roasted and HOLY COW they were not the same vegetable. I can literally eat this entire pan for dinner. No meat required. I don't know what my family plans on eating...

Lemon Garlic Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Pine Nuts & Parmesan

1 bag of brussel sprouts (I just buy the ready to use ones)
1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp garlic powder (about)
1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning (about)
1 TB olive oil (about)
1/2 cup roasted pine nuts
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan

slice each in half
dump on a cookie sheet. I sprayed with canola spray only because my cookie sheets are ancient.
squeeze 1/2 a lemon on them

Sprinkle the garlic powder over
And lemon pepper seasoning
drizzle olive oil and toss
Roast in a 450 degree oven for about 15 minutes. I like to turn them so they get brown on both sides. I like that dark brown. Thats so yummy!
Oh ya! I cant wait to eat!
Sprinkle with the pine nuts and Parmesan. This is heaven!
