Fettucine with Roast Pork and Three Cheeses

Fettucine with Roast Pork and Three Cheeses

 

I love having leftover roast pork in the house. There are so many satisfying things that can be done with it, especially in the dead of winter when we need warming constantly. This preparation, with the pine nuts, basil oil, parsley and cheeses, is a cousin of pesto, but a more hearty, complex dish -- again, just what we need in these days of early sunsets and harsh winds.

Fettucine with Roast Pork and Three Cheeses

1/3 C olive oil
1 T dried basil
1 lb roast pork, cut in strips
1 leek, white and pale green parts only, minced
1/3 C shallots, minced
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1 ripe tomato
1/2 C pine nuts
1/3 C Parmggiano Reggiano, 1/3" cubes
1/3 C fresh mozzarella, 1/3" cubes
1/3 C Gorgonzola, 1/3" cubes
1/3 C parsley, minced

Warm the olive oil and mix in the basil and allow to steep for fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sauté the leeks, garlic and shallots in some olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat.

Plunge the tomato into rapidly boiling water for 40 seconds, then remove. When the tomato has cooled, remove skin and seeds and chop roughly.

Toast the pine nuts in a dry skillet over high heat, stirring constantly, until mostly dark brown. Turn out of the pan onto a paper towel. 

Cook the pasta al dente in salted water. When it is almost finished, add the pork, basil oil, tomato, pine nuts, parsley and cheeses to the pan and set over high heat.  When the pasta is done, lift it directly from the pasta pot into the sauté pan with tongs, allowing some of the cooking water to ride along. Toss the pasta quickly with the tongs to mix the ingredients and coat the pasta with oil. Serve immediately.

as always, everything looks fantastic! i have been away from the blog business for a while, grad school and work have been keeping me VERY BUSY! but i have a ton of ideas and i hope to find time to post a few -- hope all is well with you --

keep up the good cooking!

this sounds great! I've also used leftover pork with pasta and had good results.

I see you have a whole section for leftovers on your blog. Consider joining "leftover Tuesdays" later this month. Detail on Cooking Chat.

Lovely little recipe. I made an approximation of this with some leftover pork and it was superb!
