Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries

There’s nothing to this recipe, the preparation and cooking are so quick. I throw in dried cranberries, but you can let your imagination take over. Add a handful of raisins or walnuts at the end...even sliced oranges. If your Brussels sprouts are large, cut them in half. —Ellen Ruzinsky, Yorktown Heights, NY
