A New Spaghetti Dinner

James loves spaghetti. James loves bacon. James loves brussels sprouts. This dish had to be a winner. I started chopped pancetta and rosemary in a hot pan with olive oil and tossed in several chopped cloves of garlic, black pepper and a pinch of red chili flakes. Next I added in about 1/2 lb thinly sliced brussels sprouts and a bit of water and let the sprouts sauté until just about softened. When the spaghetti was cooked I added the drained pasta to the sauté pan along with a good sized hunk of butter (about 2 TB) a dash of lemon zest, grated pecorino cheese and a splash of pasta cooking water. A couple tosses in the hot pan and dinner was served.
