I love pork chops just about any way they can be fixed but my Mom used to fix us these Italian pork chops that just can’t be beat. They are so easy to make that you can whip them up in about 30-45 minutes (and most of that is just sitting on the stove simmering). And the nice part is that if you leave it on a little longer because you got doing something else and forgot, now I am not mentioning any names but that has happened, it will be just as good or better.

What makes it so easy is that you can use jarred spaghetti sauce and the only cooking you need to do is to brown the chops in a little olive oil and saute the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes. Toss the sauce in the pan and just let it simmer until you are ready to eat. See simple, right? And you only have one skillet to clean up!

Buon Appetito!
