There is something so very comforting about pasta casseroles. Every bite brings back memories of a warm home, the flavors complimenting each other and just spreading relaxing happiness.

I remembered it was National Pork Month and didn’t want to miss my chance to celebrate! This week, the clouds covered Kansas, the winds howled, and staying inside was far more enjoyable than leaving the house. I pulled out my slow cooker and opened my cupboard. I had no idea what I was going to make, but I new it was going to be delicious.

And it is.

Here is the recipe for you! You know any combo of pork, cheese, and noodles is going to be a winner.

First – Cook a pork shoulder roast in your crock pot! Rub it generously with Pampered Chef Chili Lime rub. Add some salt and pepper for taste. Cook on low 8 hours.

When pork is fully cooked - (Honestly, I cooked the pork the first day then made the casserole the next day but I know with better planning you can do this all in one day).

  • Boil whole wheat rotini noodles, drain
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix noodles, 2 cups shredded pork, 2-3 cups shredded cheese (pick your favorite flavor!), 1 can drained black beans, a 6 oz can of tomato paste, 1 tsp white wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon lime juice, salt and pepper.
  • Eat! (ok, so some people might prefer to heat the casserole in the oven first, but my family loves it freshly mixed)

It is sooooo easy and incredibly delicious!  You can omit the vinegar and lime juice and add Salsa if you want too!
