Pork and Pasta Recipe

“A quick stovetop recipe that's great for using up leftover pork loin or those cooked chops sitting in the fridge. Used as a main dish, you can count on two generous servings.” Janice Kennedy - Sayville, New York

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta

  • 4-1/2 teaspoons chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons water
