Spaghetti Pork Savoury

Directions

  1. Cook the chosen pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, with a few drops of cooking oil, for 10-12 minutes. Drain and keep hot. Meanwhile, cut the pork into tiny strips, discarding any rind and gristly bits. Peel and chop the onion and chop the fresh tomatoes (if used).
  2. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry for a few minutes to soften it. Add the pork strips and fry, stirring well, until browned. Add the tomato pieces or tinned tomatoes (not the juice) and stir well.
  3. Cook over a low heat for another 10 minutes, stirring to break up the tomatoes, making a thick, saucy mixture. Grate the cheese. Pour the hot sauce over the spaghetti, and serve at once, sprinkled with the grated cheese.
Most Helpful

I tripled the recipe, used tinned tomatoes and bow tie pasta; added six baby bella mushrooms, three minced garlic cloves, one teaspoon Italian seasoning, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. I seasoned the pork strips with salt and pepper, and de-glazed the pan with 1/2 cup white wine! IMHO, this recipe would not have been a bit savory without the added seasonings! Made for Spring PAC 2013.
