Italian Pork and Potato Casserole Recipe

Italian Pork and Potato Casserole Recipe

This recipe has been enjoyed by three generations of my family. My mother concocted it years ago using a few ingredients she said were handy at the time. The aroma from these ingredients brings back fond memories of home.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 cups sliced red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • 1. Place potatoes and water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until almost tender; drain.
  • 2. Place potatoes in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper. Top with pork chops and marinara sauce. Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145° and potatoes are tender.
  • 3. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"My DH and DS liked it, but DD and I didn't love it. I thought it was a little bland. Maybe adding Italian seasoning? Also, my pork chops came out tough and some of the potatoes were cooked well and some were still kind of hard."
