Winner! I made this recipe with my grand daughter for a festive girls lunch. Really easy and oh so good! I used very thin boneless pork loin chops instead of the pork tenderloin and it worked out very well. The pork cooks really fast and the sauce tastes like you spent hours on it. There were four of us 'girls' for lunch and there wasn't a single morsel leftover. I garnished with some diced fresh tomatoes. Next time I will steam some broccoli to go along with it. Thank you! Great recipe! Read More

This was just ok. I made it exactly as written. We like Alfredo we like pork but this just wasn't anything wonderful. I think it was the pork and Alfredo sauce that just didn't seem to mesh. Read More

I actually didn't have high hopes for this recipe. Normally I stay away from anything that has jarred sauces. HOWEVER this was pretty darn good! I added a little more lemon than called for (and next time I will add more capers) but everything else was the same and it was AWESOME! I couldn't get enough and my husband who is very picky especially regarding pork entrees was pleased as well. A happy husband makes a happy me! I served this with roasted asparagus and potatoes along with a moscato. It was great! Read More

Made this recipe tonight and it was awesome! I didn't have any white wine so I just used water and only used 1/2 the jar of sauce (only cooking for 2). I also left out the cayenne. I added fresh garlic to the sauce also just before I put the pork back in. It was a big hit and my husband (who refuses to eat anything with an Alfredo sauce) loved it! Read More

Made as written. Needs more capers lemon zest and conservative amounts of the spices just doesn't make for a wow dish. The Alfredo sauce hides all the fresh spices. Nevertheless Thank You for Sharing. Read More
