Reviews for Barbecue Pork and Penne Skillet
"This recipe is over the top delicious! It was a hit with the whole family and will definitely go in my regular rotation. It was super quick to whip up, and the flavor was incredible."
"I have been making this recipe for a couple of years now. It is wonderful. Everyone likes it. I make it just as it is and use Lloyd's pulled pork BBQ"
"I made this last night with leftover BBQ pork and my family loved it."
"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."
"This sounds different, but the flavor is really good! Have made this many times. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"This was great!!! My husband and picky teenage son really liked it. I thought it was delicious also. I don't understand the comment that said it was bland. It wasn't bland at all, in fact it had quite a kick to it and was VERY tasty. I used Lloyd's BBQ Shredded Pork. Maybe they used some other brand? Also I used the Original Tomatoes w Green Chilis and it is more spicy than the mild version. Using what I spent (some ingredients were on sale), I found this meal to be around $1.50 per person which is a real bargain."
