  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • Hot cooked penne pasta
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional


  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Brown chops in oil in a large skillet. Remove and keep warm. Saute green pepper and onion in the same skillet until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is almost evaporated. Add tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.
  3. Return chops to the skillet. Cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with pasta. Sprinkle with cheese if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
