"Made this Thursday night and it was a big hit; we all enjoyed it. The pork was extremely tender, the sauce tasty and the leftovers heated up nicely the next night in the sauce. Although the noodles were tasty, I wouldn't pair it with this pork but will keep and use that recipe with something else. I'm making this again tomorrow night for company and plan on making plain noodles to accompany this; rice or mashed potatoes would also go well with this pork. The pork was so tender it tasted like veal!"

"Yum! My family loved this! easy, different, and delicious! I added a bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but followed everything else to a tee. I will definitely make this again."

"This recipe was so delicious! I am not much of a meat eater. However, this was tender and juicy and did not taste like pork. We also prefer our meat extremely tender so simmered this on low heat for 7 hours or so. The noodles were also terrific. There were tasty enough to be served as a dish standing alone, or perhaps be topped with other dishes like goulash or spaghetti. The only deviation from the recipe as written was the use of a low fat pork roast which I sliced myself. This goes in the family favorite recipe archives!!"

"This Is truly amazing!! However, we don't care for the noodles. The second time we made this, we just made regular parsley buttered noodles."

"love this recipe. I like to double the amount of half and half and romano cheese and use about 3/4 stick of marg. Also used a 7 oz jar of roasted peppers - so it wouldn't go to waste."
