We really enjoyed this and left overs just as good warmed up next day. Took advice and added some mushrooms and used hot paprika. Served with mixture of ordinary rice and wild rice. Thumbs up here all round.

Tastes great, I added red peppers some cayenne pepper and used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Def needed some additions. Made it once an it was lovely but couldn't remember what I'd done. Added 1 1/2 TSP smoked paprika, 1 TSP cumin + 1 TSP chilli flakes. Bit too hot. Will try 1/2. TSP chilli flakes next time. Cumin added lovely depth and complemented paprika nicely. Also added 3 cloves crushed garlic ( I love garlic) served with saute potatoes and tender stem broccoli. Yum!

I added a pack of peppers for added vitamins, a red chilli for extra kick and used low fat Greek yogurt for less fat. It was still lovely, creamy, tasty and yummy. I'm sure it would have been great tasting without the changes.

Tried this the weekend and it was really nice. I added chilli and quite a bit of smoky paprika, along with some mixed peppers and garlic. I also used more stock and fromage frais than the recipe suggested. Fried it all of in the pan and then cooked in oven till pork was very tender. Served it with sunshine rice and crusty bread. Will become a weekly favourite.

Tasty and much appreciated by the family. Based on the comments from some below, I added some garlic and chilli, doubled the stock and let the meat sauce cool down before adding the sour cream. And it looked fairly close to the recipe photo which is a first for me.

I made this, and the tomato/sour cream combo curdled. It was, to say the most, was NOT GOOD. I had to rinse the sauce off and make something else.

This is a great quick dish. I had no mushrooms around and made it as a meal for one. Used a food processor to deal with the onion; took c20mins. Very easy

I made this recipe a couple of years ago without any amendments and I remember that I liked it so I decided to make it again but this time I wanted to add my personal touch to it. I used 2 red onions and added one sliced red pepper, one chilli and one thickly chopped carrot, as my boyfriend is not too fond of mushrooms and I wanted to make sure there were other bits that could catch his attention. Before adding the pork, I rubbed paprika and pepper on it to add some extra flavour. I replaced the sour cream with some light cream cheese and it gave the dish a nice texture. Next time I will probably double the quantity of stock to have some more sauce. I served it with some parsley mashed potatoes and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was very tasty and I will make it again.

Inspired by all the positive reviews, cooked this for supper this evening. My word, what an incredibly bland meal... even with more paprika than the recipe suggested. Just meh, whereas most recipes in this site are good'uns. We were all adding mustard, Tabasco etc at the table to make it remotely flavourful. Avoid.

I’m assuming this calorie intake is without the tagliatelle or rice?

Thanks for your question. Yes, when ingredients are listed as 'to serve' they are not included in the nutritional information.

Really delicious-I added Chilli flakes, a little garlic and whit wine. Went down really well, is easy to prepared. Had it with Tagliatelle.

All paprikas are not created equal. Taste a little first on your tongue to see how fiery it is before you add. I prefer the smoked paprika which comes in red tins but it's getting harder to find as the supermarkets introduce their own brands. Disappointed with Tesco's Spanish Smoked Paprika which is all fire and no smoke. It was expensive, too. If you've got a fiery brand, you'll obviously need less than the recipe says. Hope this helps.
