  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add the pork chops and sprinkle both sides with the rosemary (or oregano) and salt, cook the chops, turning occasionally, until well browned on both sides, about 6-7 minutes.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, and zucchini slices, and continue cooking until the onions are soft about 5-6 minutes longer.
  3. Add the pasta sauce, stirring until it is well combined with the chops and vegetables, adjust the heat so that the sauce simmers gently and cook 6-8 minutes longer, or until the zucchini slices are crisp tender and the chops are just cooked through, tested in the thickest part with the point of a paring knife.
  4. Serve the chops and zucchini sauce mixture over the pasta.

Very nice entree. I served it last night for dinner with crusty bread and it was one we'll have again. I added some mushrooms to the zucchini and used penne pasta as that's what I had. I felt the meat should be seasoned more and next time will use my garlic pepper seasoning on both sides of the chops before browning. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
