Porky Pasta

Funny name isn't it? This dish is made with pork and pasta...hence the name. Why not? It's fun :)
This, as many of my pasta dishes, was a 'whatever is in the fridge and needs to be eaten' dish. Tasted delicious!

(Feeds 2 people)
300g short pasta (I love using conchiglie with this type of sauce because it catches all the yummy bits inside the shell)
225g ground pork
1/2 onion -  chopped
2 stalks celery - chopped
2 tbsp flour
1 cup beer
1/2 cup beef broth
2 tsp caraway seeds
1/4 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste

- Cook pasta al dente in salted water
- Cook onions and celery with some olive oil until almost soft, then add the pork
- Once pork is cooked through stir in the flour and pour in beer and beef broth. Allow liquid to reduce then season with salt, pepper and caraway seeds. Stir in sour cream and allow to heat through
- Mix pasta in the same pan with the pork mixture and serve

Delicious quick fix!

I'm sending this one off as my entry for this weeks Presto Pasta Nights, hosted this week by Gay of Scientist in the Kitchen. Thanks Gay!

Super cute name. You've got to love clean-out-the-fridge pastas. Especially when they involve pork!

Love the name, love the look, and love the flavor. Thanks so much for sharing with Preston Pasta Night. I can't believe I didn't get to it until now.

I'm hosting this week's PPN and would love to get another tasty treat with a cool name and glorious photo.
