Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1/4 cup natural/unsweetened almond butter (I buy the freshly made ones so it is not artificially sweetened)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint

Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Drizzle oil in an ovenproof skillet. Sprinkle pork with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper; place pork in pan. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Turn pork over, and bake an additional 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155°. Place pork on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Slice pork into 1/2 inch slices.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons pasta water; keep pasta warm.
  4. Combine almond butter, 2 tablespoons pasta water, remaining salt, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, and chili garlic sauce. Divide pasta evenly among 4 bowls; top evenly with sauce, pork, onions, and mint.
