      Wow, was this good Chocolatl. We really enjoyed this tasty dish. It was full of flavor. The sauce was a perfect blend for the pasta and the cheese. I used saffron in the beautiful, creamy sauce. What a lovely way to let the ground pork shine. I'm so glad that I tried this, I will be making this recipe often. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for ZWT7 for the Witchin Kitchen.
