Ingredients For Pork Fillet Medallions With Creamy Pasta Sauce Recipe
8 pork fillet medallions, sliced into thin strips from Morley Butchers
350g dried pasta, such as tagliatelle or fettucine
200g frozen peas
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Zest and juice of 1 small lemon
200ml low fat crème fraîche
Cooking Method For Pork Medallions With Creamy Pasta Sauce
Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water for about 10 minutes, or according to packet instructions until just tender (al dente). During the last 3–4 minutes, add the peas. Drain, keeping a little of the cooking water aside. Put a lid on the pan to keep the pasta and peas warm.
While the pasta is cooking heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the pork fillet strips for 5–6 minutes until they are lightly browned.
Next add in the lemon zest, squeezed juice and the crème fraîche. Simmer gently over a low heat for 1 minute to allow the flavours to combine.
Now bring all the ingredients together; add the pasta and peas to the sauce and toss, thinning down with the reserved cooking water if the sauce has become too thick. Season well. Divide between four bowls and garnish with a little parmesan cheese, fresh basil and some black pepper. Serve right away.
