How to Make It
Choose pasta that you prefer, such as penne, spaghetti, or linguini. Bring water to a boil over high heat, using twice as much water as the amount of pasta. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but not soft, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta, and add to recipe or serve (do not rinse.) Rinse and pat dry pork. Peel and grate apple and mix with nutmeg and lemon juice in a small bowl.(note: you may use less spice if desired.) In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat and sauté pork about 3-5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan and keep warm. In same skillet, add apple mixture and salsa, raise heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Stir in chopped basil and pepper and continue to cook for 1-2 more minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Serve pork topped with sauce over the rice.
