Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • 3 boneless pork chops
  • 2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ cup of low fat milk
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 tbsp of parmesan cheese, grated, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 oz of angel hair pasta
  • 2 cups of frozen vegetables
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. On a flat plate pour the bread crumbs and basil and mix to combine and set aside. Fill a small bowl with milk and set aside.
  3. Heat a oven-proof large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil, rolling it around the pan.
  4. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, dip into milk and press firmly into the bread crumbs, flip and coat the other side. Press 1 tbsp of parmesan cheese on the top each pork chop and place in the heated oil. Repeat with each pork chop. Brown for 3-5 minutes, flip and brown the other side. Place in the oven and bake for 20 -30 more minutes, depending on the thickness of the pork chop, or remove when pork reaches 145 Degrees.
  5. While the pork chops are baking heat 1 and ¾ cups vegetable broth and water; bring to a boil. Add the frozen veggies and cook pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  6. Remove the pork from the oven and place pork on a plate. Add the remaining ¼ cup of broth, pasta and veggies to the pan mixing to combine. Add the remaining shredded parmesan and place pork chops on top. (add more cheese on top of pork if desired.)
