Here's an easy meal-in-one recipe for busy days and evenings---great for a Saturday night supper. I found it in one of those cute little cookbooklets in the grocery store ehckout lines. I tink this one was by Betty Crocker. Net bad!
Serves 4

1 1-lb. pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon Cajun or Creole Seasoning
Kosher salt and fresh bround pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- minced 3 Roma tomatoes -- chopped 1 can beans (16.oz) -- rinsed and drained 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Dash Tabasco sauce or to taste 8 ounces fettuccine or other pasta -- cooked and drained Chopped fresh parsley Slice pork into 8 equal slices; season with Cajun or Creole Seasoning, salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown pork over medium-high heat about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove pork to a plate and cover to keep warm. In the same pan, add the onions and garlic, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper to bring out the flavor, and cook until just softened. Add remaining ingredients and cook 2-3 minutes longer or until heated through. To serve, mound fettuccine on serving plates, top with vegetable mixture and then pork slices. Garnish with parsley.
