Broccoli and Pancetta Spaghetti

Broccoli and Pancetta Spaghetti
This is a lovely quick pasta recipe from the new Silver Spoon Quick and Easy Italian Recipes cook book (I'll be giving one away in a competition soon). The whole family enjoyed it and it was gobbled up without complaint in super quick time. It really is a perfect mid week meal.

The key (I think) is to cut the broccoli into really small florets so its nice and soft - the kids seem to prefer it like that. I might add some peas next time to up the vegetables but it's delicious as it is.
