  1. In a skillet sauté 1 pound pork shoulder in 1 tablespoon olive oil until the meat is brown on all sides.
  2. Add 1 small onion and 1 clove of garlic, both chopped.

  5. Cover the skillet and simmer for 2 hours, adding a little water from time to time, if needed.
  6. Remove the pork from the sauce and reserve it as a separate course or reserve it for another meal.
  7. Cook 1 pound wide lasagna noodles in 5 quarts rapidly boiling salted water for about 15 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently to prevent the noodles from sticking together, and drain.
