Wash and dry all produce.* Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Mince or grate the garlic. Roughly chop the oregano leaves. Zest, then juice half the lemon (1 lemon for 4 ppl). Cut the remaining lemon into wedges. Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces.
Add the fusilli to the boiling water and cook until tender, 10-12 min. When the pasta is done cooking, reserve 1/3 cup pasta water (double for 4 ppl) and drain.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 8-9 min. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium.
Add the breadcrumbs, oregano, half the Parmesan and half the garlic to the same pan. Cook, stirring often, until the breadcrumbs are golden-brown, 3-4 min. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the lemon zest. Set aside. Add a drizzle of oil to the same pan, then the onions and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, 2-3 min.
Add the pasta, reserved pasta water, broth concentrate(s), sour cream, peas, spinach, 1 tbsp lemon juice (double for 4 ppl) and remaining Parmesan to the pan. Stir together until the spinach wilts and the pasta is warmed through, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the pasta between bowls and sprinkle with the pangrattato and crispy bacon.
