THIS IS COMFORT FOOD! This is a easy weeknight dish. I serve it with a garden salad and some hot yeasty rolls, with butter. Made recently (2/22/2016) with Fresh green beans, it was divine! If you season lightly between the layers, it needs nothing else. ****Note: I cannot understand how they came out "raw". I see you cooked them 45 minutes, and probably threw frozen chops in. So I upped the time from 1 hour, usually plenty of time to 1.25 hours. After 1 hour 15 min. in the oven, sealed tightly in foil, at 375 degrees, they should be done. Make sure you preheat the oven first!
