  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add in pancetta and sundried tomatoes, and saute until pancetta is crispy on the outside, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. While pancetta and tomatoes are cooking, place broccoli in a microwave-safe container. Cover with a wet paper towel and microwave for 2 ½ to 3 minutes, until broccoli is tender but still crunchy. Finish with lemon juice, plus some salt and pepper. You can also drizzle on some good olive oil (not listed in ingredient list).
  3. Return frying pan to medium heat and add butter. Once butter is melted, pour in whisked eggs and scramble until you get the consistency you want.
  4. Portion out eggs and top with pancetta, sundried tomatoes, and spinach-artichoke sauce. Enjoy with broccoli on the side (and feel free to use sauce on broccoli too).
