Skillet Pork Chops Florentine

Pork chops have been on sale so I picked up a bunch and began my quest to find some good pork chop recipes.  I only have about 3 of them.  I am not a huge pork fan by any means.  But sometimes you have to suck it up and work with what you got, right?!?

I found this recipe for Skillet Pork Chops Florentine over at AllRecipes.com and decided to give it a try.  It looks simple enough.  Basically done in 30 minutes so that is plus.  And it has all my family's favorites...pasta sauce, spinach, and cheese.  How could we pass that up?!?

A great filling meal!
The yummy goodness after it came out of the broiler


Skillet Pork Chops Florentine Adapted from All Recipes
4 pork chops, you could definitely add 2-4 more if you need to (seasoned with garlic salt, pepper, and seasoned salt)
24 oz pasta sauce
1 small onion, sliced thin
10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 TBS olive oil
4 oz reduced fat shredded mozzarella

  • Heat oil in a large skillet and brown pork chops over medium-high heat then set aside
  • Add onions and saute until tender, about 2-3 minutes
  • Add pasta sauce and spinach and bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat to low and add pork chops
  • Continue cooking for about 10-15 minutes or until pork chops are cooked through
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese and place under the broiler for about 3-5 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and golden
This is definitely a yummy dish and there weren't any leftovers.  Everyone really loved the spinach.  I had no issues getting anyone to eat everything up.  Super easy and quick to make which is a major bonus!
