Step 1

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the bacon in the oil for 2-3 minutes, then add in the onion and garlic and continue to cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.

Step 2

Add in the broccoli and cook for 1 minute before adding in the cooking cream. Bring up to the simmer to reduce slightly and add in the pecorino and basil and remove from the heat and stir through the zucchini noodles before placing into serving bowls and garnish with extra basil, pecorino cheese, cracked black pepper and lemon.
