Recipe by ciao
My family loves this hearty main dish. I get requests for it often. It's very quick and easy to prepare, great for when you're in a hurry. You can buy a couple of the ingredients already prepared in the produce section of the grocery store, if you like.

This got good reviews from my family, and it's quick to make. Next time, I would start to cook the onions a bit ahead of the meat because when it's thinly sliced like that, the onions were still pretty raw when the meat was cooked. Also next time, I would give the sliced carrots a head start on the rest of the vegetables and add the cabbage last. Thanks for posting.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 ounces spaghetti, cooked al dente and drained
- 1 lb pork tenderloin, sliced thinly into strips
- 1 medium onion, sliced in wedges
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
- 2 cups shredded cabbage (see note below)

- 1⁄3 cup soy sauce
Directions See How It's Made
- ***NOTE:I like to buy the coleslaw mix in the produce section.
- Already shredded--a real time saver.
- ***NOTE:If I'm in a hurry, I also buy the carrots already shredded in the produce section, and use instead of sliced.
- Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet or wok.
- Sauté pork, onion, garlic and pepper flakes until meat is no longer pink.
- Remove this mixture from pan and keep warm.
- Add remaining tbsp of oil (or more as needed) to pan and sauté cabbage, bok choy or celery, carrots and peppers until crisp tender.
- Add spaghetti to cooked veggies in the pan.
- Stir in soy sauce and add pork mixture back to the pan.
- Cook for 5 minutes or until heated through.
- (At this step, I like to get the noodles nice and dark, by cooking a bit longer. You decide).
