Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 pork chops, i used thinly cut
  • 1 large onion, sliced and pieces cut in half
  • 6 tablespoons garlic, chopped, i used the chopped garlic in a jar
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 13 cup marsala wine
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 2 inches Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 lb ziti pasta, cooked according to box directions
  • salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste

  11. Place pork chops in a single layer, in a lg round or square casserole dish (I used my frying pan, because it is oven proof, or you can use an iron skillet -- this would work great too) but if you don't have one, use a casserole dish for this dish.

Gave it a try tonite, and I tell you, I've never seen my family suck down a new recipe like they did this one! I changed a few things: no marsala, used red wine instead no ziti, used rigatoni added about 1 tsp of Dijon mustard to the sauce I made it with country-style pork loin, half-fat soup, and fat-free sour cream. Lots of fat cut out, no loss of taste. Fabulous recipe! Thanks!

I made this for my family and everyone complimented the chef! My DGS went back for more, and he's real fussy! DD and I have decided to add it to our repotoire of monthly meals. This would be good with shrimp, steak or chicken too! Wendy

This was a solid recipe if you are looking for a casserole kind of thing. Maybe not a throw it together, quick, I am nuts and in a hurry but takes it up a notch. I used rice instead of the noodles following the recipe otherwise. It turned out good and the leftovers were equally as well. Thanks for sharing this.
