I had to use up some Roma tomatoes from my plants, along with the basil, so did a bit of an experiment. Turned out pretty good, according to my husband anyway. LoL!
You can prepare the tomato sauce in advance. Cook time does not include the time it takes to make the sauce.
If you don't have a non stick skillet with an oven going handle, you can wrap the handle securely with aluminum foil so no part of the handle is visible. Works like a charm. Or a non stick baking dish will work too.
I saw this thing called Bacon Jam being served on one of the episodes of Eat St. on Food Network. So off I went in search of a recipe and found this one by Not Quite Nigella. I did make a slight adjustment.
I had some mushrooms that were begging to be used and as my husband just loves them, I came up with this recipe.
I usually use my non stick frying pan to bake the chops. If you don't have a heat proof handle on your pan, wrap it securely with foil.
If you really love shrooms, like my husband, you can reduce the chops to 2 and still make the same amount of ragu, which is what I did ;)
