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

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
