Koteletter med pestospagetti

Easy, quick and delicious. My favorite kind of dinner! Sometimes you don't need a lot of ingredients to make a tasty meal. Simple, is sometimes better. I love simple flavors. And this dish smells and tastes like it came straight out of an Italian kitchen.

Here is what you need:

Pork-chops and Pasta

  • Pork-chops.
  • Whole grain Pasta.
  • Pesto.
  • Cherry tomatoes.
  • Salt & Pepper.

See, only 5 ingredients! Doesn't get much simpler. Mamma mia!

First, boil the pasta after the instruction on the package.

Drizzle some oil in a pan and let it warm.

Cook the pork-chops quickly in a hot pan.

Sprinkle on salt and pepper.

After about 3 minutes they should be a bit brown and nice.

Take the pan of the heat and put a lid on it so they can "after-cook" for 5 minutes.

The pasta should be done now, strain of the water and blend in the pesto.

Slice up a few cherry tomatoes (I used cocktail) and serve. Tempted?

These flavors works so well together. Perfect for a Wednesday night! Can you see the statue of libraty mark in my pork-chop? Freaky!
