Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage & Roasted Brussels Sprouts

So, I'm looking through old posts for a recipe and see a sprinkling of unfinished posts. In case anyone cares, anyone?, no, ok well I'm still going to publish these unfinished musings on recipes I've made in the last two years. :) 1 lb fresh brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and any yellowed/browned outer leaves removed, then sliced in half 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper 1 lb (16 oz.) orecchiette (or any pasta) 4 chicken sausage links (I used spicy Italian), sliced into 1/4" thick coins 5 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced 1/3 cup pesto Parmesan cheese, for serving Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together brussels sprouts, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, salt and pepper. Gently stir until well-combined. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then spread the brussels sprouts on it evenly. Roast for about 20-30 minutes
