Okay, I just can't help tweak recipes ;-) In this case I've switched out the choice of meat for the traditional French classic of 40 Clove Chicken by using pork and added pasta to the mix. Don't be afraid of the amount of garlic used because roasted garlic is a mild sweet flavored out of this world treat and even any leftovers (what are leftovers?) are delightful!


  • 3 small garlic bulbs
  • 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. fettuccini
  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin medallions, small dice (1/3 inch cubes)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (if using cooking wine, omit the salt listed above)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cut 1/2 inch off the top of each head of garlic. Place garlic bulbs, cut side up, each on a separate square of aluminum foil, evenly drizzle the 2 tablespoon of the olive oil over the top of each bulb, wrap each and bake until garlic is soft, about 45 to 60 minutes, remove from oven and let cool. Once cool use a fork to squeeze the cloves out of the skin.

Once the garlic has been removed from the skin begin to boil water for the fettuccini and cook al dente according to package directions, once cooked reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water and drain the rest.


While the water is coming to a boil, heat the second 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat, add pork, season with the salt and pepper, cook until browned and cooked through, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Stir the garlic cloves and sage into the pork pot and cook until fragrant, just a few seconds. Add the white wine, scrape up any remaining bits off the bottom of the pan, add the chicken broth and let the sauce cook, stirring occasionally, until it reduces by 1/3, about 7 to 10 minutes.

Return the pork to the pot, add pasta and parsley, toss to coat, "if needed" add the reserved cooking water a little at a time for a more moist consistency and serve.

Since I usually only cook occasionally for one or two guests at a time, I place wax paper between the extra uncooked patties, place them in a Ziploc bag and freeze them for future meals.


  • 2 1/2 lbs. ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, finely shredded
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 heaping Tbsp. minced fresh onion
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper


Preheat grill to medium high.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, roll into 8 equal sized balls and flatten into 1/2 inches thick patties.

Grill, turning once after 4 minutes, and cook until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 160 degrees F, about 3 to 5 additional minutes.

One of the best cooking tips I ever received, was from a co-worker and friend. He told me to get a pork roast, place it in the crockpot, and pour a jar of pickled pepperoncinis (juice and all) over the roast. Cook until the meat falls apart. He said to serve it with warm tortillas. You could serve with rolls. Good eating!

I purchased corn bread flavored Stove Top Stuffing at the store and a maple bourbon marinated pork loin for dinner. My kids usually only eat stuffing under duress, so I tried making it look a little more interesting by "stuffing the pork loin".


They ate it right up :)

Heat a large saucepan and pour in the honey, stir until it sticks but is not caramelized. Add the butter and when hot add the pork cubes. Stir until brown for about 10 minutes.
