Pork Penne with Oranges & Walnuts
Pasta and spring veggies are meant to be enjoyed together. Pork and orange might sound like an unlikely combination in a pasta dish, but the savory flavor and bursts of fresh orange really intrigue the taste buds in this easy weeknight dinner recipe.
Cook penne in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.
Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium-high. Add pork and sauté until browned, 5–6 minutes; transfer to a plate. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in same pan. Add mushrooms and onion and sauté until mushrooms release their moisture and onion softens, 7–9 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in pork and penne to heat through.
Whisk together remaining 4 Tbsp. oil, lemon juice, orange juice, and zest; season with salt and pepper. Toss dressing with penne mixture; stir in oranges, parsley, and walnuts. Top servings with Parmesan.
