Cook ZENB Pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli during last minute of cooking. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain.2.
Meanwhile, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in large nonstick skillet on high heat until shimmering. Season pork with salt & pepper. Add half the pork to skillet in a single layer. Cook, undisturbed, 3 minutes or until bottoms are well browned. Stir; cook 1 minute or until outer surfaces are no longer pink. Transfer pork to clean bowl. Repeat with 1-1/2 teaspoons oil and remaining pork.3.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet on medium-high heat. Add vegetables; cook 2 minutes or until tender-crisp. Return pork to skillet. Combine remaining ingredients with reserved pasta water in small bowl. Add to skillet; cook 2 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in pasta and broccoli. Mix gently until well combined.
For a spicy dish, serve with Asian chili crisp.
The key to a successful stir-fry is to use high heat to quickly cook meats and vegetables in stages without overcrowding the pan. This ensures that veggies stay slightly crisp, and meats develop a sear instead of steaming.
