Thought this was very good. I did some things different. For example, the grocery store did not have fresh rosemary so I used a suggestion on here and used oregano (and some extra garlic powder). Next time I will make sure to use the rosemary, it needed it. I also added capers and I used canned tomatoes (Italian style, very good). I would not recommend capers.
I made extra sauce because everyone suggested it. The sauce was incredible. The olives, tomatoes, and cream blended perfect together. I also put more salt and pepper in than it called for - couldn't taste it really.
I used light cream to save a few calories and thought it was very good. Can only imagine how good heavy cream would be in it.
I would make this sauce again even without the pork, just for pasta. I actually put whole wheat spaghetti here. What I did was put the spaghetti in a big dish (like a lasagna pan), put the pork on top, and covered with the sauce. The pork was a little tough, I cooked it longer than suggested. This meal would be good with a soft steak or chicken as well. I don't eat shrimp but would imagine people would love baby shrimp in here as well.
One thing I would suggest besides a pasta is some hot pepper, probably jalapenos in the sauce. And I would cook the garlic in the pan as I'm browning the pork so the garlic is more tender. I loved the garlic but not everyone loves it not fully cooked.
Very easy to make also.
