Description:Simple preparation is rewarded with stunning presentation and flavor. Quickly cook the meaty, center-cut pork chops in a skillet while the pasta boils. Toss the pasta with our Caesar, olive and garlic dressing, and dinner is done. The pasta can be served as a warm or cold salad. Stovetop – 16 minutes if thawed, 25 minutes if frozen.
Preparation: Thaw completely. If meat is frozen or partially frozen, defrost slightly in microwave before cooking. Do not over-microwave or meat will become tough. Pasta and dressing do not need to be defrosted.
Cooking Instructions: For pasta salad: In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts water to a boil; add pasta and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Drain pasta and return to sauce pan over heat. Add sauce mixture to pasta, and stir until heated through. Pork Chops: Spray a large skillet with non-stick coating and cook chops over medium heat 5-8 minutes on each side or until browned and internal temperature is 160F on instant read thermometer. Serve chops with the warm penne pasta.
