Asian Pork 'n' Peppers Recipe

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • Dash hot pepper sauce
  • 2 ounces uncooked multigrain or whole wheat spaghetti

  • 2 tablespoons chopped leek (white portion only)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Stir in the oyster sauce, curry powder and hot pepper sauce; set aside. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
