Made only 2 small & insignificant changes when preparing this ~ I used red bell peppers instead of the green, & I substituted lemon pepper for the usual S&P! What a great way to serve up pork chops! This recipe is certainly a keeper ~ Thanks for sharing it! [TEagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This is a great and easy-to-make dinner meal. For my personal preference I used only 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning. The sauce came out really tasty and had a nice tang from the worcestershire sauce. Next time I'm going to add a little tomato puree for a brighter color and I think a sprinkling of shaved parmesan cheese on top of each serving would add a nice flavor to this already delicious dish. Thanks for posting!
