Author's Notes

If there is too much liquid when you are tossing the pasta with the other ingredients keep cooking until it evaporates, you are looking for a glossy sauce coating the pasta.

Step 1
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook Pasta (1 pound) according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water prior to draining.
Step 2
Thinly slice the Brussels Sprouts (3 cup).
Step 3
Dice the Pancetta (3/4 cup).
Step 4
In a small skillet, toast Pine Nuts (1/4 cup) until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Step 5
Add Salted Butter (3 tablespoon) and 1/2 teaspoon of Garlic (1/2 teaspoon). Cook for 2 minutes over medium heat.
Step 6
Add Panko Breadcrumbs (1 cup) and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Set aside.
Step 7
In a large skillet over medium heat, fry the diced pancetta until crispy.
Step 8
Add the Olive Oil (3 tablespoon) and then the Brussels sprouts. Cook the sprouts and pancetta until they are beginning to brown and get crispy, around 8 minutes.
Step 9
Add the remaining Garlic (1 1/2 teaspoon) and cook for 1 more minute.
Step 10
Stir in the White Beans (1 can) and season with salt and a grind of fresh black pepper.
Step 11
Stir in 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water. As it comes to a boil, use your spoon to scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
Step 12
Add the pasta, remaining pasta water, and remaining Salted Butter (4 tablespoon) and toss everything together until combined.
Step 13
Add the zest and juice of the Lemon (1), the pine nuts and half of the breadcrumbs. Toss until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
