An Italian-style version of pork chops was one of the first recipes I tried making in the early years of my marriage. I've changed it over the years to be healthier by reducing added oil and fat, and by adding in some vegetables. It works well served over hot rice. —Traci Hoppes, Spring Valley, California

"I thought this was good, just needed a few things like basil and garlic added to it.Cooked the pork chops with garlic pepper, basil and Italian seasoning on them. Always look at a recipe and see what spices and herbs could be added. Served with fresh artichokes and pasta for the sauce. Very yum!"
