  1. Cook noodles in boiling water until al dente, or still slightly firm in the middle. You will be adding it to sauce in another step, so don't cook it all the way.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and black pepper and cook until pork is slightly browned in parts. Remove pork from pan.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add shallots and mushrooms. Cook 2-3 minutes until browned.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and add 1/2 cup broth. Cook 3 minutes until liquid reduced by 1/3, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add the rest of the broth and tomatoes to mushroom mixture and bring to a simmer.
  6. Stir noodles, pork, and spinach into sauce and remove from heat.
