Looking for a simple and satisfying dinner to put on the table this week? Well, look no further than today’s Eat Well Wednesday recipe for Pork Chops Parmigiana! Lean, boneless pork chops take center stage in this dish, highlighted by all the familiar flavors found in a traditional parmigiana (but without the extra fat and calories from the fried breading on the meat and loads of excess cheese!). Transform this easy entrée into an even better-for-you meal by serving with whole wheat or whole grain pasta and a side of Steamfresh® vegetables, which are on sale this week!
