Use the Slow Cooker or Instant Pot to make this Italian Pulled Pork Ragu that would be wonderful served over pasta, spaghetti squash, or spiralized zucchini noodles.
Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Italian Pulled Pork Ragu from Skinnytaste combines the rich flavor of pork tenderloin with tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and fresh herbs to make a hearty sauce that is oh so tasty. And pork tenderloins are a lean option which makes the sauce light enough that even eaten over pasta it’s a low calorie dish.
For an even lower calorie, low-carb option try the sauce over spiralized zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash. (Here are Three Ways to Make Zucchini Noodles if you haven’t tried that.)
