Cook the pasta
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water; stir gently to separate. Cook, 1 to 3 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup cooking water (1 ½ cups for 4 portions), drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the pasta cooks, zest and juice the lemon. In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining 1 tbsp lemon juice with 3 tbsp olive oil (double both for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste.

Cook the pork
In a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and ground pork*; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until browned and cooked through.

Cook the ragu
To the pan of pork, add the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the broccoli ‘rice’ and cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 min., until tender. Add the pasta, mascarpone, ⅔ of the reserved cooking water, ¾ of the Parmigiano Reggiano and up to ¾ of the lemon zest (to taste). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until combined; season with S&P to taste. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.)

Finish & serve
In a large bowl, combine the vinaigrette, baby greens and beets. Toss well. Divide the pasta between your plates. Garnish with the remaining Parmigiano Reggiano and as much of the remaining lemon zest as you’d like. Serve the salad on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking ground pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
