Italian-Style Pork Chops Recipe

Publisher Photo
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
