Basil Pork Chops with Caesar Penne Pasta

Description:

Simple preparation is rewarded with stunning presentation and flavor. Quickly cook the meaty, center-cut pork chops in a skillet while the pasta boils.  Toss the pasta with our Caesar, olive and garlic dressing, and dinner is done.  The pasta can be served as a warm or cold salad.  Stovetop – 16 minutes if thawed, 25 minutes if frozen.

Cooking Instructions

Preparation:  Thaw completely.  If meat is frozen or partially frozen, defrost slightly in microwave before cooking.  Do not over-microwave or meat will become tough.  Pasta and dressing do not need to be defrosted. 

 

Cooking Instructions:  For pasta salad:  In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts water to a boil; add pasta and cook 10 minutes or until tender.  Drain pasta and return to sauce pan over heat.  Add sauce mixture to pasta, and stir until heated through.  Pork Chops:  Spray a large skillet with non-stick coating and cook chops over medium heat 5-8 minutes on each side or until browned and internal temperature is 160F on instant read thermometer.  Serve chops with the warm penne pasta.

 

Suggested Sides:  Super Suppers Asparagus with Dill Sauce
