Pork, Broccoli and Ricotta Pasta

I have made this once before and we used chicken, we rarely use pork with pasta, so I decided to try it out. It was good, but not as good as the chicken. Chris loved it though.

1 pound of rigatoni(I cooked enough for 2 of us)

2 heads of broccoli heads chopped

1 cup of water

2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 pork chops or pork diced up

4 cloves of minced garlic

2 cups of ricotta cheese

A pinch of nutmeg


1) Boil water, add salt and pasta. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water and drain the rest.

2) In sauce pan simmer the broccoli in a cup of water covered about 5 minutes, drain, set aside.

3) Heat olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat.

4) Add pork and garlic, cook pork through about 5-8 minutes.

5) Add broccoli, pasta and ricotta, and the reserved water, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

6) Toss until creamy, then transfer to a plate.

I served this with a toss salad and parmesan toasted bread.
