Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apple and Pancetta

This recipe was nice and refreshing. My family was a little scared to try apples and a balsamic vinegar dressing, but they were pleasantly surprised. I edited this recipe from Better Homes and Garden Eat Well, Lose Weight Issue. I served it with some Cream of Fennel and Potato Soup and Paccheri alla gricia
