This recipe is very easy to make and in the twenty minutes it took me to whip it up, my daughter had chopped up a salad. Dinner was complete! The alfredo sauce used in this dish is not as rich as many, but the flavor is very intense. If you have fresh tomatoes cut a couple up and use them instead of the stewed. This is a new family favorite. Enjoy!
Cajun Pork Alfredo Pasta
(printer friendly copy)
1 lb. mostaccioli rigati pasta, cooked but firm
1 15 oz can petite stewed tomatoes
1 15 oz can black beans
1 1/2 lb cubed pork, I used loin.
1 1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning, use less if you don't like it hot
1/4 cup butter
1 cup whole milk
2 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Sprinkle the pork with the cajun seasoning, and if you have time let it sit for a few hours to absorb the flavoring. If not, go ahead and brown and sauté the meat in a skillet, until thoroughly cooked. While it cooks melt butter in another skillet. Pour milk into butter and allow to simmer for about five minutes. After simmering add garlic, parmesan cheese and parsley. Stir over heat for about two minutes, to allow the flavors to mix. Remove from heat. Combine pasta, pork, beans and tomatoes in a pot. I like to use the pot that the pasta was cooked in, as it is warm. Pour alfredo sauce over all, stir and serve.
