Ground Pork Pasta: A Tasty Variation

Ground pork pasta is a fantastic way to switch up your pasta routine and introduce new flavors to your favorite dishes. The natural richness of ground pork adds depth and complexity to pasta sauces, creating a satisfying and memorable dining experience. Its versatility allows you to explore a range of culinary possibilities, making it a fun ingredient to work with.

Spicy Italian Ground Pork Pasta:


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces of your favorite pasta
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  • In a large skillet, brown the ground pork over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a spoon. Drain excess fat if needed.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the skillet and cook until softened.
  • Stir in the dried oregano, dried basil, red pepper flakes, crushed tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • While the sauce simmers, cook the pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain.
  • Toss the cooked pasta with the ground pork sauce until well coated.
  • Serve the spicy Italian ground pork pasta with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves for an extra touch of flavor and freshness.

Creamy Pasta with Ground Pork


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 8 ounces pasta of your choice (e.g., fettuccine, penne)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  • Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, sautéing until fragrant and translucent.
  • Add the ground pork to the skillet and cook until browned, breaking it up into small crumbles. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  • Once the ground pork is cooked through, reduce the heat to medium-low and pour in the heavy cream and chicken or vegetable broth. Stir well to combine.
  • Sprinkle in the dried thyme, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.
  • Add the grated Parmesan cheese to the skillet, stirring until melted and fully incorporated into the sauce. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
  • Toss the cooked pasta into the skillet with the creamy ground pork sauce. Mix well, ensuring that the pasta is evenly coated.
  • Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the pasta to absorb the flavors of the sauce.
  • Serve the creamy ground pork pasta in individual bowls or on a platter. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness.


  • For an extra burst of flavor, add sautéed mushrooms or diced tomatoes to the sauce.
  • Enhance the dish with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a hint of heat.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices, such as rosemary or Italian seasoning, to suit your taste preferences.
