Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put a large pan of water on to boil, then cover. Place the cherry tomatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with half the olive oil and scatter over the garlic. Roast for 5 mins until the skins begin to split, then move the tomatoes to one side of the tray. Toss the broccoli in the remaining oil until well coated, and add to the other side of the tray. Season both with a little salt and lots of ground black pepper, and roast for a further 8-10 mins.

  2. Add the spaghetti to the pan of boiling water and cook for 8-10 mins until tender. Meanwhile, put the bacon lardons in a non-stick frying pan and heat until the fat begins to run from them. Cook, stirring regularly, over a medium heat for 5 mins until crisp, then remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.

  3. Drain the spaghetti and toss together with the lardons, half the tomatoes (leave the remaining tomatoes on the tray until cold, then cover and chill for frittata, see 'goes well with') and the broccoli. Scatter over the grated Parmesan and serve.

my tip is that when the tomato is cooked, just by gently pressing on them with a spatula can release the sauce making the pasta taste even more delicious.
