This recipe for pork ragout with penne pasta has quickly become one of my favorite comfort foods ~ especially on a chilly winter’s night. I love it with a simple salad on the side. I admit, it takes a little patience and time to prepare as the pork is slow roasted. BUT, the tender, savory and fragrant ragout is so worth the effort.
This recipe practically feeds an army, so it makes fantastic left-overs. I think it’s perfect for the holiday season when you’re short on time, but like to come home to a home-cooked meal that’s easy to reheat. I make this dish on a Sunday when I have a little extra time (Sunday sauce). Then I plan to use the left-overs during the busy work week. It also freezes well if you prefer to divide it up for later use.
