Boil a large pot of lightly salted water. Boil for 5 minutes with the broccoli. Set aside after scooping with a slotted spoon.
- In the same pan, cook the pasta according to the package directions. In the meantime, combine the broccoli, pine nuts, basil, garlic, parmesan, and oil in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Season the meat with black pepper and a pinch of salt. Be careful since the pancetta is very salty.
Cook the pancetta for 2 minutes in a frying skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 3 minutes or until the tomatoes are softened.
- Toss the pasta with the broccoli pesto, tomatoes, and pancetta, and add a splash of pasta water if needed to loosen it up.
To serve, ladle the mixture into bowls.
