I love pork and pasta so this is one of those dishes that I make all the time. I always know the family will devour it.
It’s not just one kind of pork. Oh no! This recipe calls for pork fillets, rindless smoked back bacon and some moorish chorizo. If you love pork, you will be in pork heaven.
I like to serve the sauce with large conchiglioni pasta. Mix the sauce well into the pasta and the large shells soak up all the sauce. We’re talking one amazing mouthful after another here. Pork pasta just doesn’t get any better.
You could of course make this recipe with simple pork but I do enjoy all the different flavours and textures you get from using pork loin, smoked bacon and Spanish chorizo.
Making the most of this recipe…
It goes without saying that fresh and top quality ingredients are essential.
I use pork, bacon and Spanish chorizo from my local butcher. That is the way I like it.
In the summer months, I use fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes. I find the canned tomatoes work best in the winter months.
As for the paprika, you could use sweet or smoked Spanish paprika. Either will do for this pork pasta. Whichever you prefer. I love the smoky flavour of smoked paprika.
