Roasted Brussels Sprout with Bacon in Mustard Cream Sauce

This was amazing.  Seriously.  I cant believe it's so low in calories.  I ate this for dinner all of last week & found myself wanting to remake it for several weeks in a row.  This is definitely on the repeat list.

Recipe slightly adapted from Closet Cooking
Yields 4 servings

1.5lbs brussels sprouts, trimmed & quartered

1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbsp flour
1 c light cream
2 tbsp grainy mustard
1/2 c parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss brussels sprouts in olive oil, salt, & pepper.
Place in a baking dish & and roast for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a pan, cook the bacon.  Drain & set aside.

In the same pan, add margarine & let melt and bubble.
Add the onion & cook until tender.
Add garlic; cook until fragrant.
Mix in flour and let cook for another minute or two.
