A note about serious food allergies

There are some nights where craving is for delicate flavors and adventurous vegetables, and other nights when the stomach gods are pointing to a big 'ole plate of pasta. This dish is dedicated to the big plate nights, with simplicity and flavor at its core. Marinara sauce and pork cling to the bowtie pasta in all the right spots, mixing for a delish bite. The pecorino and red pepper flake topping add the touch of spice and cheese that rounds out perfection. Big 'ole plate, clean 'ole plate.
