    1. 1
      Mix spices and garlic with ground pork.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a very large pan and sautee the ground pork for 7-10 minutes or until cooked through (leave the meat in large pieces, then break it up with a wooden spoon once it's browned).
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, cook the pasta to al dente.
    4. 4
      Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.
    5. 5
      Add the pasta and water to the pork mixture with the heat on high (you want the liquid to reduce).
    6. 6
      Add spinach and tomatoes (you want the spinach to barely wilt).
    7. 7
      Immediately add the butter.
    8. 8
      Season with salt and pepper to taste and add some freshly grated Parmesan if you like.

      Saw a program on t.V. about sausage making and well you know the rest of the story. Added only 1 tablespoon of cumin, omitted the garlic and formed into patties. Looking forward to this for dinner. Will add my stars tomorrow.
