If you have access to an oven/toaster oven:
Preheat to 300.
Heat pork until just warmed through.
Cut into bite sized pieces and put on pasta. Or don’t. Either way.
If you only have access to a microwave:
Heat pasta first.
Meanwhile, cut pork into bite sized pieces.
Place on pasta.
Zap for 20-30 seconds.
* If you didn’t make it, it only takes a few minutes. Click on the recipe and follow through to resting the pork. Can be sauteed instead of grilled.
**As I’ve mentioned, I always find pork on sale. Maybe I’m just lucky that way. Chicken thighs would work fine. Chicken breasts would work fine. Cheese would work fine.
