Ingredients

  • 1 Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Topped Pork Loin Filet
  • 1 lb. dry penne pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (8-oz) pkg. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 (15-oz.) jars Alfredo sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Cut pork loin filet into ½-inch thick slices and then into ¼-inch wide strips. (Note: Bacon will fall off but make sure to keep it.) Working in two batches, heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir fry half the pork and bacon pieces for 7 to 8 minutes until well browned. Set aside on separate plate and repeat with another 1 tablespoon oil and remaining pork and bacon.

  4. Drain pasta and return to pot; stir in pork and bacon, mushrooms and Alfredo sauce. Stir over medium heat about 4 minutes until heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Sprinkle with green onions and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
