Just had to share it with you...

I just had to share this recipe with you. I found it on and it was a great way to use any leftover pork I had from the previous night. I just sliced it up and then added it to the recipe as it called for it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Fettuccine with Creamy Pork & Asparagus Sauce


12 oz. (3/4 lb.) dry fettuccine pasta, broken in half
2 teaspoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb. ground pork
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups (about 1/2 lb.) fresh asparagus, tips and tender stalks cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
1 can (12 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
3 oz. grated queso fresco or Parmesan cheese or more to taste
Chopped fresh parsley or cilantro (optional)


COOK fettuccine according to package directions.

MEANWHILE, MELT butter in large skillet on medium low heat. Add onions; cook until lightly golden about 3 minutes. Add ground pork; cook on medium heat stirring constantly, until no longer pink; drain. Stir in asparagus tips. Season with salt and pepper. Add wine; bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes to reduce. Reduce heat to low; add evaporated milk. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.

COMBINE pork and asparagus sauce with drained fettuccine. Serve immediately sprinkled with a little queso fresco and parsley, if desired. Remaining cheese can be served along with pasta and sauce.

Enjoy :)
