  • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 TBS crushed dried basil leaves
  • 2 lbs. lean pork tenderloin (or 1/2 pound of ham), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 can (28 ounces) recipe-ready diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 ounce) plain pumpkin or 2 cups cooked pumpkin
  • 1 can (14 1/2 fluid ounces) chicken broth (use low sodium if using ham)
  • 1/2 cup rosé or white Zinfandel wine

  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 4 medium white rose potatoes, cubed

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and basil; cook for 1 minute or until onion is tender. Add pork; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned.
