My family really liked this. It's definitely a new great way to have pasta. I used angel hair, but I think it would be good with other pastas as well. Take heed when it says "not to much" oil though, I think I probably over-did that part. Great, different taste!

Perfect! Loved it. Not a fan of the onion so i scaled it down to one. Other then that its an Italians Dream. Just like ma used to make. :P BTW.. noticed lots of people saying sauce is thin and needed thickening. Its is supposed to be thin. Anyways GREAT dinner. Saved it in my book.

Overall a good recipe. I took the advice of another and took the pork chops out before adding the wine & water, then added them back in just before the pasta was done to reheat. I also added just a tablespoon of butter and basil to the sauce. One other addition was to season the chops with season salt. I tooped the dish off with some fresh grated parmesean cheese. We'll make again. Thanks for sharing!
