The sweetness of the brussels sprouts comes out nicely in this simple side dish. For an upscale take on it, drizzle a small amount of white truffle oil over the sprouts just before serving.

1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed
½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 pinches freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
1½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 pinches crushed red pepper (optional)
shredded parmesan (optional)
