Mayonnaise adds great tang and texture to this easy pasta recipe--who knew? Black garlic, which is fermented, offers a sweeter, more mellow flavor than fresh. Find it at well-stocked supermarkets or substitute cloves of roasted garlic.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes, garlic and black garlic. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes start to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Add peppers; cook, stirring, until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the pasta, pork and 1/2 cup cooking water. Cook, stirring gently, until coated, about 2 minutes, adding more cooking water as needed.
Remove from heat and stir in basil, mayonnaise, vinegar and salt. Toss to evenly coat.
