Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the carrot, onion, garlic, tomato paste, thyme, oregano, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the tomatoes (and their juices); add the pork and turn to coat.
  2. Cover and cook until the pork is very tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).
  3. Twenty minutes before serving, cook the fettuccine according to the package directions; drain and return it to the pot. Meanwhile, using 2 forks, shred the pork and mix it into the cooking liquid. Toss the pasta with the ragù and sprinkle with the Parmesan.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
