Monday Meals: Pizza Pork Chops with Orzo

Hello! How was your weekend? Like the past few weekends, we had a good mix of productivity and laziness. The weekend weather felt like a glimpse of summer, for sure!

I was looking through my recipe box, which I don’t do very often, and I stumbled upon a meal I hadn’t made in awhile. It’s so easy, delicious, and a family favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless pork chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped onion (about half a small onion…or more if you prefer!)
  • 1 jar Marinara sauce
  • 0rzo pasta
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  • Salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops and place in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle the onions over the top of the pork chops.
  • Pour Marinara sauce over the pork chops and onions.
  • Cover and cook for 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
  • When ready to eat, cook Orzo pasta according to package directions.
  • Place pasta on plate (or in bowl), the scoop out desired amount of pork chops and sauce. (*Note- meat is so tender that it will fall apart.)
  • Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese (and some chopped fresh basil if you have some)
  • Enjoy!

I’d forgotten how easy and delicious this dinner is! We even had leftovers the next night!

We have one more full week of distance learning! #praisehands So…I’m go get my mind right for this week!

Thanks for reading!
