My daughter demonstrated this recipe at the state fair and received lots of compliments. Since she is involved in both the food projects and the swine projects, she took great pleasure in promoting Minnesota pork.

"My husband and I made this together, I wanted to try it ( because it was different ) he was skeptical ( because of the orange flavor ). While making the sauce he continued to taste, so we added another teaspoon of horseradish. Still too strong of a orange flavor. I thought there wasn't enough sauce so I decided to double it. Again adding more horseradish. In the end, I thought the dish was very edible, nice flavor, and using rice instead of pasta may have been better. We will not be making this again because of the overpowering orange flavor."
