Here’s a must try Pork Chop recipe with Italian Style tomatoes.

These thin boneless pork chop recipe is quick, simple and robust in flavor.

I came with this recipe after sending my husband to Costco one weekend, and unavoidably, becoming the proud owner of one case of organic stewed Italian tomatoes.  After being slightly annoyed, and really having no idea what I was going to do with them,  I set out to find dishes I could use them in!  I now give you Recipe #1 : 

Italian Garden Style Pork Chops

Much to my surprise these Roma tomatoes are actually pretty good. They have “notes of  basil, oregano, garlic, and green bell pepper”. And, have come in handy when I was looking for a more robust flavor in my recipes calling for diced or peeled tomatoes.  


 You could use chicken breast. I served with left over pasta but try it with brown rice or spaghetti squash.

A  30 minute meal tops…and worth it.  

Here’s a few pics and the recipe:
