Ground Pork with Creamed Pasta

Ingredients

  • 1 box any pasta (My personal favorite is Cavatappi!)
  • 1 pound Moink ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, if you like
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 1 16 oz bag frozen corn or peas (you can also use fresh asparagus cut into small pieces)
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese

Kitchen Rhythm

Start a pot of water for the pasta, always add at least a tablespoon of salt!

Instructions

  1. In a 3 quart pot, add olive oil and get the pork browning.
  2. Add the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Stir in the chopped onions.
  4. When the pork is visibly crumbled and the onions clear, add in the whipping cream and garlic.
  5. Check the pasta! You always want your pasta al dente, not mushy.
  6. Just as the cream sauce starts to bubble, add your frozen corn or peas. Let the pot get all bubbly.
  7. Strain your pasta, but don’t rinse it!
  8. Add your pasta to the saucepot. Fold together, top with parmesan cheese, and serve it up!
