27 Recipes – Pork Skillet Pasta

27-Recipes-Pork-Skillet-Pasta-Finished

After how much I loved the first one pot pasta I made, I decided that I wanted to try some other variations with meat. Pork isn’t something I cook often, so I decided that it would be what I experimented with this time around.

  4. Remove from the heat and top with cheese and serve

My Thoughts

This was a big win in my books! Clearly I love capsicum and mushroom since I use both in most recipes, but they really go well in this one! And I quite liked the pork sausages done like this as well. Next time I might add some basil for a bit of extra flavour too, although it still has plenty without. I was skeptical about using milk with pasta, but it surprisingly works well.

Michael’s Thoughts

Michael liked this and his only suggestion was to try with real tomatoes instead of canned.
