Basil Pork and Asian Noodles
Here is a easy to prepare and quick dinner idea. Hope you enjoy it!
8 oz. uncooked angel hair pasta (capellini)
2 teaspoons asian sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seed
1 lb. pork tenderloin, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup purchased stir fry sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups frozen sugar snap peas
1/4 cup sliced fresh basil
Cook pasta to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain. Add sesame oil; toss to coat. Cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add sesame seed; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Watch them carefully to prevent burning. Remove from skillet.
Spray same skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add pork and onion; cook and stir over medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until pork is browned.
Add stir fry sauce, honey and sugar snap peas; mix well. Reduce heat to medium; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until peas are crisp tender, stirring occasionally. Add basil; cook and stir 1 minute. Serve mixture over pasta. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seed.
