step 2
When it is starting to leave a brown layer on the bottom, deglaze the pan with half of the Beer (1/4 cup) and scrape it all up.
step 3
Once the liquid has evaporated and the bacon crisps again, deglaze the pan with the rest of the Beer (1/4 cup) and add in the Brussels Sprouts (5 cups). Scrape up the rest of the brown bits and stir it all together.

step 4
Let it cook for a couple of minutes, then add in the Chicken Stock (1/2 cup). Season it all with the Salt (1 pinch) and McCormick® Garlic Powder (1/2 tsp). Lower the heat and let it simmer.
step 5
Meanwhile, salt the boiling pasta water and cook the Rigatoni (1 lb) until tender, for about 8 minutes.
step 6
While the pasta cooks, take 1/2 a cup of the cooking water and pour it into the pan of bacon and brussel sprouts. Add in the Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) and let it all melt in and emulsify with the liquids.
step 7
When the pasta is done, drain it and stir it into the pan of sauce. Stir in the remaining Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup) and the Butter (1 Tbsp) to bring it all together. Scoop it into bowls and serve immediately!
