  1. One hour before. Cut pork tenderloin against the grain into 1 inch medallions and then pound flat and thin. Marinate in you favorite Italian dressing. You can do this up to 24 hours before.
  2. You will need three pans for this. One to boil your pasta. A large skillet to make you pasta sauce and combine with the pasta. A large saute pan to brown and cook the tenderloin.
  3. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook you pasta per directions on package.
  4. While the pasta is cooking. Heat large skillet and add oilve oil, onions and garlic and saute over medium heat until onions soften.
  5. Add peppers drained, tomato and green beans and saute until tomato dissolves into sauce this is usually about 10 minutes. Stir frequently you don't want anything to brown, just soften.
  6. Turn off heat Add about 1/4 cup of shredded asiago cheese. If you want more cheese use it as garnish. If you try to mix it into the sauce it will clump.
