    CHRISSYG's Note:

    After making "Tony Luke's" Roast Pork Sandwich so many times, I thought I'd come up with something to try to top it as far as my family was concerned, well this did the trick! For the pasta, use something substantial, like a GOOD oriccheti, or frozen cavetelli. (p.s. this recipe doubles or triples easily for crowds... and it is a CROWD PLEASER!)
