Currently working and going to grad school. Given my stress level and time constraints (and with my doctor's blessing), I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight, just be healthy and not gain. Once I get my degree I'll pick things up again.

Yes! Roasting this way is awesome, and I second the parmesan cheese! A little squirt of lemon in nice also!

Roasting or sauteeing them will be best if you've never tried them before. If you cut them in half they cook faster. You can toss them with any spices you like. The nice thing about sauteeing them is you can fry them in a little oil at a high heat for a few minutes and then toss in some liquid (olive oil/red wine/oregano is a good combination; so is sesame oil/rice wine vinegar/five spice powder), put the lid on, and lower the heat. Don't over cook, they'll turn into the brussels sprouts that everybody remembers hating from childhood.

They are wonderful roasted in the oven. I marinate them in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and a little lemon then dump them on a baking tray and bake until tender. My husband loves them!
I like the ones that come in steamer bags in the frozen section. One brand even has little single serve pouches. Steam them up and season them however you want. The few times I've tried roasting or pan sauteing them they were kind of dry for my liking, but I'm not the best cook. :) Part of the problem(I think) was not using enough oil. When I did them in the pan, I ended up adding a bit of water and covering them til it cooked off and that was enough to soften them.
