Basil, marjoram and Parmesan cheese nicely season this satisfying main dish from Polly Lynam of Mequon, Wisconsin. "I saute the meat while the pasta is cooking, so it takes just minutes to make," she says. "My family likes it with tender strips of pork, but chicken is an easy alternative."
With a fruity apricot, raisin and apple topping, these tender chops are special enough to serve to company, yet simple enough to fix anytime. The best part is that the apples don't have to be peeled—just core and slice, and you're ready to go. —Kathleen Harris
As a Texas native, I prefer spicy food. But since my husband and I both work nights (I'm a nurse), I also need quick dishes like this. I've taken it to parties at work, too, and most tasters enjoy it - with an icy cold soda in most cases!

I WAS creating recipes to teach pork cookery to high school classes when I discovered this pan-grill method of preparing meat. The results are tender and juicy.
This 15-minute entree is just right for a busy cook - it's delicious, and the portions are perfect for two people.

"My sister gave me the recipe for this easy five-ingredient marinade," writes Bernice Germann of Napoleon, Ohio. "It keeps the meat so moist and tasty...now it's the only way my husband wants his pork chops prepared."
This is one of the quickest main-dish entrees I have...and one of the most delicious. My family loves honey and mustard. Paired with crispy pork, it's even more mouthwatering. Pounding the boneless chops tenderizes them and makes them cook quickly. It's wonderful to have something as tasty as this when time is short.—Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho
"I always prepare a few extra pork chops for this colorful stovetop meal," writes Loreen McAllister from Elsie, Michigan. "I serve it with garlic bread and a tossed salad for a fresh-tasting dinner with Italian flair."
