A sure way to perk up pork chops is with this herbed creole sauce. You can adjust the range of seasonings to suit your tastes. The red sauce with a sprinkle of green parsley makes a pretty presentation on the plate.
Vine-ripened tomatoes roast up into a versatile sauce that's excellent over pasta, grilled chicken and fish or on toasted French bread for bruschetta. I often double or triple the recipe, and my husband still can't get enough.
Your family and friends won't believe you when you reveal the "secret ingredients" for this flavorful pork roast—peanut butter! I've served this roast to guests for years, and I can't tell you how many times I've sent copies of the recipe home with guests. For a change of taste, you can substitute toasted walnuts for peanuts and use walnut oil instead of peanut butter.
