I made this today and it was really good. I used roasted red bell peppers but that is the only thing I changed. We will be having this again for something different.
This was even better than expected. Depending on the BBQ pulled pork, consider adding a little more BBQ sauce to taste. The green onions really enhance this dish, so they are well worth including. Thanks for the great recipe.
It was not liked by anyone in my family. I used our favorite bbq pork leftovers too, but for some reason it just didn't work. For me it was the bbq with the pasta, but my husband didn't like the tomatoes mixed in.
I was a little disappointed in how this turned out, but that was due to the gluten free rice pasta I used. It's so easy to overcook that, and it broke up as the dish heated through. Other than that, though, we liked the idea of bbq pork with pasta. Like others, I used leftover bbq pork I had made. I had a honey bbq sauce and just didn't think the cumin and chilies would work that well with it, so I used plain diced tomatoes and substituted chili powder for cumin. We thought it had a great flavor and it did make a lot. We love leftovers, so that is great!
Good texture, easy and quick to put together, not too spicy for the kids (6 & 10), 10 yr old asked if she could have leftovers for her lunch tomorrow. However, my dh and I did not care for it. I think pork w/o the bbq might be better for us. To be fair, we don't make many one pan meals. We prefer meat, grain & vegetable separate. If you like bbq pork it's definitely worth trying. It does make a huge pan full.
