Does the picture above make your mouth water? I want to reach through the screen and eat the whole plate– even though I had Tuscan pork chops for dinner last night, I could definitely eat leftovers today
I bought a ton of pork chops from Cosctco the other week, and I am really enjoying experimenting and trying new ways to flavor and cook them. This recipe is very slightly adapted from Sweet C Designs— another great blog found through Pinterest. The meal was a hit and incredibly flavorful– awesome dinner!
- 4 pork chops
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 5 cloves of garlic, diced
- 1 can diced tomatoes, not drained
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tsp oregano
- 2 tsp basil
- 1 pound rotini pasta
- Pesto sauce for pasta (I used a Knorr pesto packet)
- Prep time: 5 min
- Cook time: 15-20 min
- Servings: 4
- Difficulty: easy
Prepare pasta and pesto sauce according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pan on high until warm. Brown pork chops on each side, 1-2 minutes each.
Reduce heat to medium and stir in onions. Continue to flip pork chops-- 2 minutes on each side. Then add the tomatoes, garlic, and other spices. Simmer pork chops and sauce for about 5-10 minutes-- make sure pork is cooked through.
Serve on a bed of pesto pasta.
