With a refrigerator full of my smoked pulled pork and an invitation to a party, I decided to put together my version of BBQ spaghetti as a pot luck item. Such a simple preparation and use of competiton level pulled pork plus my own BBQ sauce, spagehtti, onion, garlic and some added seasonings.
Starting with 4 cloves of freshly minced garlic and one very large yellow onion diced.
8 ounces of frozen pulled pork was removed from freezer to thaw. Approximately 2 cups special recipe bbq sauce and 1 1/2cups tomato sauce (not pictured).
The onions were sauted in olive oil til softened and then the minced garlic was added. This mixture was sauteed for another 1-2 minutes.
The tomato sauce was added to this mixure plus about a half cup of water. Also added was 1 tablesppon dried parsely, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper and salt to taste.
The pulled pork is added and the mixture left to simmer for about 5 minutes.
The BBQ sauce is added and the mixture simmers for another 5 minutes.
The sauce is added to the cooked spaghetti and is ready to serve.
I felt the result was very good though the bbq sauce was a little sweet, I only hope the party guests enjoy.
