Ribbon Pasta With Pork Ragu and Fresh Sage


Reserved jus is reduced into a sauce to coat long ribbons of pasta (we like mafalde because it holds on to the meat well). The rich flavor of sage is a natural pairing with pork.

  • Servings: 4

  • 1 pound ribbon pasta (such as mafalde)

  3. Divide among 4 bowls. Garnish with finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese.

    This was a very easy recipe and a great way to use up leftover braised pork, however I found it a little dry and bland. Throwing the sage in was a bit of a cop out for giving it some real flavour. I'll probably find a different way to use up my leftover pulled pork in the future.
