“My honey absolutely loves this! Easy to make and not a lot of ingredients. I do stress that you use pork chops with the bone in it. I believe the bone adds more flavor. This should cook for a while so the pork gets tender and starts to separate from the bone. If you choose a thicker cut allow more time for the meat to tenderize. This recipe tends to make a thinner tomato sauce,you may use one can of plain plum tomatoes and one can of plum tomatoes with thick puree for a thicker sauce. Basil should be added at the very end of cooking process. Serve with your favorite pasta and salad. Mangia!”
