Creamy Tomato Pasta

Our fridge is in desperate need of some groceries so dinner last night had to get creative.   We got lucky though, it was delicious!  two things I had going for me: 
1. I had ground pork in the freezer
2. I have my own herb garden so fresh herbs are always around

This is what I used

    • 1 (16 ounce) package shell pasta
    • 2 medium red onions, chopped
    • 1 large tomato, chopped
    • 1 pound ground pork
    • 1 Jar of store bought Tomato Sauce
    • 1 cup sour cream (maybe a bit more.....I used whatever was left in the container)
    • 2 Green onions chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • fresh basil to taste

    This is what I did

    Brown Ground pork.
    Add onion and garlic and let cook until soft, about 5 minutes.  

    Stir in Jar of tomato sauce, cumin, fresh basil and sour cream.  

    Combine with cooked noodles and transfer to a serving plate.  

    Sprinkle chopped tomatoes and green onion on top and garnish with whole basil leaves

    I also had a bunch of baby bok choy in the crisper so I sauteed that with a bit of garlic and butter to up our veggie intake.
