Brussels sprouts with Parmesan and garlic

Can you have too many Brussels sprouts recipes?  No.  (I thought we already settled that!)

Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan and Garlic

Olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 t red pepper flakes
1 lb Brussels sprouts, sliced thin
Salt and pepper
1/4 c fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet, add the garlic and pepper flakes, and cook until garlic is golden.  Remove from the pan to a paper towel-covered plate to drain.  Add the sprouts to the skillet with a bit more oil if needed.  Stir and cook, adding a few tablespoons of water from time to time to create steam, stirring until sprouts are tender, about 8 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add the garlic mixture to the sprouts, tossing together just to heat through.  Add the cheese just before serving.
