  Peanut oil/Corn oil 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), chopped finely
  Small onion 3 Ounce, coarsely chopped (1 In Number)
  Green bell pepper 1 Small, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  Extra lean ground pork 1⁄2 Pound
  Grated fresh ginger root 2 Teaspoon
  Pineapple juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Canned no salt tomatoes 16 Ounce (Whole Ones, 1 Can)
  Double concentrate tomato paste 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon

  Bay leaf 1
  Finely chopped fresh cilantro 2 Tablespoon
  Pasta 1 Pound, cooked and drained

In a large saucepan or skillet, heat the olive oil over moderate heat.
Add the garlic, onion, and bell pepper and saute until tender, about 3 minutes.
Add the pork with the ginger and saute, stirring and breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it loses its pink color and just begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the pineapple juice and stir and scrape well to deglaze the pan.
Add the tomatoes, breaking them up with your hands, and stir in the remaining ingredients, except the cilantro.
Simmer the sauce until it is thick but still slightly liquid, 20 to 25 minutes.
Spoon over cooked pasta and garnish with cilantro.
