Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 300g pork fillet or pork escalopes (cut into small chunks/ pieces)
  • Pasta - enough to serve 2 (I used shell pasta and cook according to packet instructions, around 10 mins)
  • 1 small pot sour cream
  • 1 tspn smoked paprika
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • White asparagus (around 200g/300g)
  • Handful of button mushrooms (halved)
  • Small bunch fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • Salt/ pepper
  • Olive oil
  1. Put the pasta on to boil. Around 10 mins.
  2. Heat a dash of olive oil in a large/ deep pan and add the pork. Make sure all pieces are browned. Around 3-4 mins.
  3. Peel and trim the asparagus and then chop into small pieces. Add to the pan with the mushrooms. Stir in the smoked paprika and then pour in the sour cream and lemon juice. Add a splash of boiling water to the pan. Cook on a medium heat for around 5 mins or until the pork is cooked through and the asparagus is tender.
  4. Drain the pasta and then add to the creamy sauce. Mix well so that the pasta is covered in the sauce.
  5. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the fresh parsley. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
