1

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Thinly slice the red onion. Cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. Slice the lemon in half.

2

Add the penne to the saucepan of boiling water and cook for 7 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook until tender and the pasta is 'al dente', 3 minutes. Drain the pasta and broccoli.

3

While the pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and diced bacon and cook, stirring, until tender and lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Add the baby spinach leaves and cook, stirring, until just wilted, 1 minute.

4

Add the cooked broccoli and pasta, basil pesto, the salt and a pinch of pepper to the frying pan. Crumble in 1/2 the feta. Toss together until well coated. TIP: Tossing some of the feta through the warm pasta will melt the cheese and add a creamy coating.

5

Add a good squeeze of lemon juice to the pasta. Toss to coat. Season to taste with pepper. TIP: Seasoning is key in this dish. Taste and add a little more lemon juice, salt or pepper if you like.

6

Divide the bacon, lemon and pesto pasta between bowls. Crumble over the remaining feta to serve.
