Reviews for Barbecue Pork and Penne Skillet
"I made this last night with leftover bbq pork and my family loved it."
"I used my own shredded bbq chicken recipe and subbed in chicken broth instead of beef and I am IN LOVE with this dish! It's so simple and delicious, definitely will be making again!"
"It sounds so good. But my husband and teens did not like it real well. It is very flavorful and unique. So have to scratch it off my lst."
"The easiest and quickest meal I've ever made. A little tangy depending on which kind of pulled pork you buy with the BBQ sauce already mixed in."
