  • “I LOVED THIS RECIPE.It was sooooo good.I didnt have a can of crushed tomatoes so I through a can of stewed tomatoes in my chopper and chopped em up a bit, I also added a small can of tomato sauce and it worked like a charm.My hubbie was late from work ao I turned down the heat and let it simmer for an extra 20 or so min and the meat was tender and juicy.I have found a gem in this recipe.We eat to much chicken and this will serve as a nice change of scenery.Thanks for sharing.”

  • “Excellent and the kids even ate it without complaining!”

  • “Great recipe, however I used regular boneless pork chop cuts, the kind you get when you buy the family pack and left them whole.I also used a jar veggie spaghetti sauce which saved some time and money. It may not be as authentic, but it still worked out great.I also baked everything in a dish to really seal in the flavors.”

  • “This is a wonderful recipe.I wanted to post it but after checking to see if anyone else had posted it I found you.I’ve been making it and we love it!”

  • “I really enjoyed this recipe.I used some shredded pork that I had in the freezer and it still came out good.I did add more tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce and used fresh Rosemary.I served it over noodles as recommended.The next night I used it as a filling in tortillas with cheese and rice.The flavors really came out the second night.Good recipe, will make this again. “
