serves four

8 oz. soba noodles
3 cups broccoli, cut into florets
8 rashers of bacon
1 garlic clove, minced
1 large lemon, zested and juiced
½ teaspoon dried chili flakes
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/4 cup basil pesto
1/4 cup parmesan, grated

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook them for 5 to 6 minutes, or until they are just tender. Add the broccoli to the pan for the last 4 minutes. Cook bacon in a frying pan. Once the bacon is done remove from pan and chop. Be sure not to drain the fat from the pan. Saute the garlic, lemon zest, pine nuts and chilli flakes until garlic is aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice and pesto to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the noodles, broccoli and bacon to the pan and stir until well mixed. Serve with parmesan cheese.
