Pasta with Pulled Pork

So here’s the recipe for the pasta dish that I mentioned in my post yesterday. It’s my favorite recipe using pulled pork. I love it because it’s not just very easy but also oh so goood..hearty, yummy satisfyingly-good!! It’s easy like I said provided you have done the pulled pork already, all you have to do is boil the pasta while heating the braising liquid or the stock from cooking the pork, grate some cheese, roughly chop your greens, mix ’em well, taste it, et’s done!

Although the recipe asks for pappardelle which is not very common, you can substitute any flat or ribbon noodles or any pasta really, I like to use leftover or scrap uncooked lasagna sheets, I have an assortment of them cause I like to try different brands of pasta recently I tried spinach lasagna sheets and I have some extra too so I used it for this recipe..perfect!

So what’s a pappardelle? Pappardelle is a flat ribbon pasta (pa-par-day-lay) it’s cousins with tagliatelle (tah-lyah-TELL-eh).. wider than fettucine ( fay-tuh-chee-nee) and longer and narrower than lasagna.. ü

Ingredients (click ingredient to buy it)

  • 1 pound pappardelle or other wide ribbon pasta
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds pulled braised pork
  • 2 cups braising liquids
  • 3 tablespoons butter cut into pats
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Large bundle arugula watercress, or spinach, washed and trimmed (I sometimes use basil)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Grated nutmeg
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese for garnish


  • A handful fresh flat-leaf parsley or celery greens, chopped, for garnish
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Salt the water, add the pappardelle, and cook to al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking liquid just before draining the pasta.
  • Meanwhile, gently heat the pulled pork and braising liquids, in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Drain the pasta and return it to the hot pot, and toss with butter, the braised pork, 2 cups braising liquid, lemon juice, and starchy water as needed to produce enough sauce to coat the pasta and give the pappardelle movement.
  • Wilt the arugula greens into the pasta, and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg, to taste. Serve in shallow dishes and top with cheese, and parsley.


if using lasagna sheets, break them into pieces before cooking - Olive
