Marry Me Pork Chops Recipe @pinch

If you're not already married you may be after your spouse tries these Italian-inspired pork chops. We used sun-dried tomatoes because we love their texture and flavor. But, you could easily use chopped tomatoes or a combination of both for texture. The thick and chunky sauce is wonderful with the tender pork chops. Jennifer suggests serving it with rice or pasta, but we thought it was so filling it could be a meal by itself. I defrosted chops and had a plan but didn't have the ingredients. I made this with chicken before but never with pork chops. This is a winner. The chops are tender and have lots of flavor. I had mushrooms and tossed them in too. I may try this with a handful of peas. I also used 2 tomatoes that I had and didn't want to waste. Served this with rice but can use any pasta.
