Spiced Pork Pasta

IMG_20180409_192612.jpgI wanted to create a rich and spicy pasta without reverting to my usual combo of flavours.  Oh my gosh it was so so so good.  The meal has a unique flavour profile that we will keep coming back to.  You must give this a try. If you are on a lower carb diet, just halve the amount of pasta and mix blanched broccoli through the pasta upon serving.
