    Taken from the BBC Good Food magazine. Easy to make and a lovely fresh lemon flavoured supper dish. Even nicer with homemade pasta.

      This is a gorgous recipe! I did add an onion and a few cloves of garlic when cooking the bacon which made it devine. I made a double batch last night and there is nothing left this morning :)

      We loved this. I toasted my pine nuts in the oven, as opposed to in the skillet. Also I used a little more bacon and pine nuts than called for. The lemon in this is great! This was a delicious dinner that went well with Garlic Texas Toast and sweet corn. Thanks for posting this, it's excellent.
