OK, that's the recipe. I... didn't follow it totally. Do I ever???? First, I didn't have any pasta sauce. I could have, and usually do, use tomato sauce and doctor it up with spices to make the pasta sauce, but... I grabbed a can of tomato soup instead and doctored THAT up with Italian spices. LOL I added some orange pepper cubed and some onions, too.
I, also, didn't have Parmesan cheese. I did have shredded Swiss cheese, though, and sprinkled that on top the finished stew. AND... I didn't have pork tenderloin so I used pork chops. OH!! I only microwaved the potatoes until soft; otherwise I used the stove top. Let's see... anything else??
Everyone liked it. Even Denny. YAYAY : )
