  1. Pork: Marinade the pork loin, and pan sear until all sides are browned. Place the pork loin in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Cook until juices are bubbling through and meat has a crust on the outside. Make sure the roast is juicy on the inside. Be careful not to over cook!

  3. Add a tsp of olive oil to the pan and heat until oil is sizzling. Add 2 cloves of garlic, diced and let it brown. Add red onions until caramelized. Add celery, carrots, peas, parsnips and sauté for 2 minutes. Next, add 2 Tablespoon of tomato sauce or to taste. Add the roasted pork. Season with thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  4. Place mixture in a baking dish and spread a layer mashed potatoes over on top. Bake for 25 minutes or until mash potatoes are a golden brown.

Pro-Tips

This was truly comforting! The flavor of the buttery potatoes flavored with cheese and cream was delicious. Consider experimenting with unusual veggies too. I added parsnips because I thought it would be different. Parsnips have a sweet flavor, and are very similar to turnips in texture. Cooking is really about using ingredients that taste good to you and are healthy at the same time.

I found 6 OZ Ramekin Bowls 8 PCS, at Amazon. These ramekins are oven safe, sleek, and porcelain white. They are great to use for puddings, Creme Brulee, custard cups and Soufflés. You may purchase 6 OZ Ramekin Bowls 8 PCS at a reasonable cost at Amazon. These can be used to make mini pies, which are a great idea for weight management.
