Italian Pork Chops with Peppers & Chiles on Buttered Egg Noodles
The last time we were in Italy Peter had a pork chop dish that he still raves about. Grilled chops covered with a slow cooked medley of sweet and hot peppers, onions & garlic served over hot buttered noodles. The vegetables were incredibly fresh...just-picked taste, the pork was as natural as possible and the bit of heat from the chiles added the perfect finish.
I have attempted to recreate this dish with a few twists. I pan cook the chops most of the time (although grilling is wonderful too) and I use sweet red bell peppers and jalapeno to substitute for the Italian ones. I also add eggplant because I like the "meatiness" this vegetable adds to the sauce. Perfect for a weeknight dinner...elegant enough for company.
