Pork Cutlet Spaghetti "OHHHH"

Serves: 12

Cutlets and pasta were my mom’s go to meal when she had us over. So this recipe honours her life of feeding us that on so many occasions. But of course I have to switch it up and put my twist on it. And yes this one has a twist…..Instead of chicken I used pork. I was looking for thick pork loin chops but couldn’t find any so I used a pork loin roast which I sliced on the length to make my cutlets. This one takes a while to make but I promise it is a hit!

Each section has steps to make it easier.
