Sized right for two, this rustic and comforting entree is treated to a combination of apples, raisins and nuts. "The fruited sauce adds great flavor," says Tiffany Anderson-Taylor of Gulfport, Florida. "I serve this often, and when I double it for guests, it's often greeted with cheers."
"After having peanut sauce in an Asian restaurant, I fell in love with the flavor and began experimenting. I came up with my own lower-fat version," says Lynne Van Wagenen, Salt Lake City, Utah. "We eat this pasta dish often."
Tina Gantner of Matthews, Missouri writes, “It took me a few tries to perfect this recipe, but now it's a favorite in our household. More Cajun seasoning can be added, but it tends to make the dish too hot for children. Chicken breast can be substituted for the pork tenderloin and rice can be used instead of the noodles."
“I downsized this handy one-pot recipe years ago for my husband and me,” writes Wendy Nuis from Stokes Bay, Ontario. “It's delicious, versatile and so easy to double when company comes.”
TIP: “Try substituting Italian sausage for pork or adding extra veggies for more color and nutrition,” Wendy says.
Peaches, plumbs and raisins are seasoned with a hint of cardamom, ginger and citrus flavor in this warm chutney. Jacqueline Deibert of Klingenstown, Pennsylvania serves the sweetly spiced mixture over slices of tender herb-rubbed pork.
Pork and apples are such a good match, and this down-home supper is proof. I really like that the lean cut of meat is tender and juicy, but healthy, too. —Clara Coulson Minney, Washington Court House, Ohio
