      One glance at the ingredients list told me that I was going to love this dish and I certainly did! The flavors of the tomatoes and spinach are fresh and bright against the bite of the olives and salty tang of the cheese. The tender pork and creamy pasta make this a quick, easy and mouth-popping meal. Other than to thinly slice my pork instead of cube it and to add a tablespoon or so of fresh oregano, I followed the recipe as written. Changes I will make next time to suit our tastes are to add some garlic and omit the lemon pepper (the primary ingredient in the brand I use is SALT of all things!) using fresh lemon zest and black pepper instead. Thanks for posting this terrific recipe!
