A tasty and easy meal

We had some food that we needed to go through, so I punted and created a great and easy italian dish. You can too! Here's how:

Pasta with Hearty Pork Sauce

1 lb of boneless pork, in a large chunk
1 jar tomato sauce
1 red onion
6 green onions
5 cloves of garlic
6 sun-dried tomatoes
2/3 cup dried mushrooms
bit of olive oil, salt, pepper
hard italian cheese

Dash the meat with salt and pepper (both sides) and let it sit for a bit. Chop the red onion into 16ths and slice the green onion into thin strips. Slice the sun-dried tomatoes into small bits and peel the garlic. Brown the pork in a pan (do not worry about cooking all the way through). Cut the pork into chunks just larger than bite-size. At this point, you can put the onions, tomatoes, garlic, and pork into a bowl in the fridge to save until later. Or, proceed to the next paragraph.

Place the onions, tomatoes, garlic, and pork in a slow-cooker. Cover with tomato sauce. Cook for 5-6 hours on low or 3 hours on high.

Prepare a pot to cook the pasta, and boil the mushrooms. When they're tender, add the pasta and cook. When the pasta is done, drain the entire pot and plate the pasta. Top with the meaty sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.

The sauce gets very hearty with the meat and veggies in it, and slow-cooking the pork will make it just fall apart in your fork! Mmmmmm!
