I recently made this one for dinner one night and it is sure to be a stable on our meal rotation! It kind of reminds me of a jazzed up Hamburger Helper, but so much healthier than you get from a box! Pair with your favorite garlic bread or a side salad.



1 – lb Ground Pork

14-oz can Petite Diced Tomatoes

2 Cloves Garlic, chopped roughly

1/4 cup Marscapone Cheese (or can substitute heavy cream)

2 Tbsp Tomato Paste

1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1 tsp Oregano

1 lb Orecchiette Pasta



  1. In a sauce pan, cook orecchiette pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup water.
  2. In a skillet, combine ground pork, garlic, and oregano until ground pork is browned.
  3. Stir in Tomato Paste and Red Pepper Flakes and cook 1-2 minutes, until combined with a slight shine.
  4. Add Diced tomatoes, pasta, and 1/2 of your reserved pasta water. Cook until slightly thick.
  5. Mix in marscapone cheese (or heavy cream) until combined. Top with parmesan cheese & enjoy!
