This was delicious! Do you have the nutritional values for this recipe? Thanks!

Is each pork chop about 6 oz? I know some pork chops can be heavier in ounces than others.
Yes – on average!
What is your favorite kitchen tool to make zoodles with? I see there is a variety of gadets out there, but curious as to what you use.
My favorite is my Paderno Spiralizer!

I did this a few nights ago with pork and canned tomatoes. Loved it so much I decided to try it with chicken and added mushrooms this time and served it over sautéed spinach. My husband said this was his new fav!
What a fantastic suggestion! I will definitely be trying this!
What a great recipe. I served with bake green beans!
I’m so happy you liked it!
Would this work in the slow cooker? I find pork chops always turn out much more tender in a slow cooker, so that’s usually the only way that I eat them.

Going to make this tonight. Had the flank steak tacos last night…pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to do this program without your great recipes. My family was worried dinners would be boring since mom was going to ‘diet’, but now I’m pretty sure they are all excited about me trying new, delicious recipes. Thank you!!
Comments like these are THE BEST! Thank you for taking the time to write…and keep up the amazing work…you are doing great things for yourself and for your family!
Do the pork chops cook all the way thru with that little time on each side?
They do! Boneless pork chops don’t take long at all…but you can always cut into one to make sure!
I have a bunch of cubed pork leftover from a tenderloin…how might I make this into a casserole? I have some leftover ricotta too. Maybe toss all together with some zoodles? I dunno…
Did you try anything? I love the sound of what you are thinking…I would cook the pork with the tomatoes, then toss with zoodles and top with ricotta! YUM!
Why is this 1 green? My tomatoes and onion wouldn’t equal 1 green (I don’t think). I just made this for my weekly meal… can’t wait to try it!
Hi Kim – I think I originally counted this as a full green because I served it with zoodles…I just changed it to 1/2 green…I agree, I am not putting a full green of tomatoes on my pork chop either. Thanks for the comment – hope you love the dish!
Lindsey Wolters says
how long do you think it would take for bone-in pork chops??
It depends on the thickness, but usually around 4-5 minutes a side.
Liz Hardy says
I’m making this tonight! I can’t wait to try it!
Awesome! I hope you love it as much as we do!
Are all four one serving worth the red and one green and a trace of blue or is it one pork chop worth that?
Hi! The container count is for one pork chop! Just edited the recipe to reflect this – thanks for the comment!
This was delicious! I added just a little white wine to the bottom of the pan after the onions cooked to add a little juice and get all the onion bits up and used 1/2 a blue container and topped with some mozzarella cheese. I will definitely make this again.
Yum, Susan!! You can cook for me anytime!! 🙂
Jessica Ellerbee says
I am excited about trying this recipe tonight! My porkchops are cooking now!
I would love to learn more fixed recipes!
Yay! Hope you like them as much as we do!
This was so good! I made last night. Only change… I used canned diced tomatoes in place of the fresh. I drained and rinsed them so they would not add too much juice. This is such an easy healthy recipe, thanks! It’s a keeper! I served over garlic parm spaghetti squash.
That’s awesome! I am so happy to hear that this worked with canned tomatoes – such a great time saver and tip! Thank you!
