Ingredients

1 1/4 - pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and coarsely chopped
1 - cup chopped carrots (2 medium)
3 - ounces pancetta or 8 slices bacon, chopped
1/4 - cup finely chopped shallots (2 medium) or 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1 - tablespoon butter
3 - cloves garlic, minced
1 - tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 - cup finely shredded Asiago or Parmesan cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon ground black pepper
1 - cup whipping cream
1 - tablespoon coarse ground mustard
Dash crushed red pepper
1/2 - cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs) or other coarse bread crumbs


Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a 1 1/2-quart au gratin dish or casserole. In a large saucepan cook Brussels sprouts and carrots in lightly salted boiling water for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender; drain well. Return vegetables to saucepan.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook pancetta over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer pancetta to paper towels to drain, reserving drippings in skillet. Add shallots, butter, and garlic to drippings in skillet; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in flour. Stir shallot mixture into the vegetables in saucepan. Stir in pancetta, 1/2 cup of the cheese, the salt, and black pepper. Spoon Brussels sprouts mixture into the prepared dish.
In a small bowl stir together cream, mustard, and crushed red pepper. Pour mixture over Brussels sprouts mixture. In another small bowl stir together the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and the panko. Sprinkle over Brussels sprouts mixture.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and topping is golden.
