Pesto rice with tuna & broccoli

Very easy to make. Bacon and tuna sounds like another strange combo but actually tastes good.

2 cups of rice
2 cups of broccoli florets (frozen or fresh)
1 yellow capsicum
4 slices rindless bacon
1 250g tinned tuna in brine, drained
1/4 cup of basil pesto
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix pesto and lemon juice together.  Boil rice until cooked; boil broccoli florets until cooked (take care not to overcook them).  Remove seeds and stalk from capsicum and cut into squares. Cut bacon into small pieces and fry until cooked.

When rice has cooled, add the pesto and lemon juice mixture.  Add the capsicum, bacon and tuna and stir through, ensuring that the ingredients are evenly spread through the rice.
