Pork Chops Italiano Recipe

Pork Chops Italiano Recipe

I have been making this recipe for more than 30 years. Children as well as adults love them. These juicy chops are covered with a basil-seasoned tomato sauce and melted cheese. They're so easy and so fast, too. Any cut of chop can be used...I like to use boneless.—Janene Christensen, Eureka, Missouri
