Reviews forBarbecue Pork and Penne Skillet
"Yum! This was different, but delish!"
"Wow! What a good recipe! We loved it! I made it this morning exactly as written except I used shredded leftover pork roast tossed in some BBQ sauce. Tasted and added couple of shakes of Worcestershire, 1 Tbsp vinegar and 1 Tbsp dried parsley. I left it for flavors to develop until dinner when I reheated it. Family loved it!Next time I make it I think I will sub 14 oz can of diced tomatoes for the Rotel. That way I can control the heat and add hot sauce to taste."
"Great quick meal. Was looking for something different to make and this was excellent choice. Thought it could use more pulled pork then the one container suggested and I will use my own pulled pork next time. Wanted to taste more of it.Found it impossible to add all ingredients and mix up in the frying pan so mixed all in large casserole and it still was overflowing."
"This recipe was AWESOME! Great flavor with a nice kick to it. I though it was a little too dry, next time I make it and there will definitely be a next time I will probably put in the whole can of broth. The green onions on top were the perfect accent to the dish. Thanks for the recipe!"
"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"
