  • 1
    Good Nature® Pork Tenderloin, cut ½” pieces
  • 2 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp
    safflower or canola oil
  • ½ tsp
    kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp
    freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 oz
    macaroni or other short pasta
  • 4 cups
    whole milk
  • 6 oz
    medium cheddar, shredded
  • 2 oz
    smoked gouda, shredded
  • 1 tbsp
  • 1 tsp
    dijon mustard
  • 1 dash
    hot sauce (or more to taste)

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter and oil. Add the pork and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until pork is lightly browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove pork from pan and add the pasta and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently to keep the pasta from sticking. Cook until pasta is al dente, about 5 minutes. Add the cheddar and gouda and stir until melted. Add the honey, mustard, and pork; season with hot sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken and serve.
