Reviews for Pork 'n' Penne Skillet
"My 9 yr old really enjoyed this dish as did I. She says it needs to go in the recipe box! The sauce turned out really creamy. Yum!"
"My whole family really liked this. The pork was very tender, and we loved the sauce. I used a bag of frozen onions and peppers and it turned out great. Will definitely make this again soon."
"I made this last night and my family loved it. It was so easy and I love that it is made in one pan. This is definitely a keeper."
"So easy and tasty!! I am so tired of recipes that I put tons of work into and the result is just ok. This one was easy and delicious!"
"I have made this several times, sometimes subbing chicken for the pork. Love that its a one pot meal."
"Liked this recipe, the pork was very tender. Made a few changes, I added some green peppers in place of mushrooms and some red pepper seasoning to give it more of a kick. The oringinal recipe is a little mild so if you like something a little more flavorable add your favorite seasonings."
