Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Boneless pork loin chops (about 1 large chop) ½ pound
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon
Herbs de provence ½ teaspoon
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Summer squash, sliced ½ medium
Zucchini, sliced ½ medium
Tomato, sliced 1 medium
Shredded part-skim mozzarella ¼ cup
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  2. Slice pork in half lengthwise and crosswise, so that you end up with 4 pieces from 1 chop. Season with the salt and pepper and then sprinkle with herbs de provence.
  3. Coat a baking dish with olive oil and then add the squash and zucchini. Turn to coat in the olive oil and then arrange into 4 single-layer groups at the bottom of the baking dish.
  4. Top each squash and zucchini group with a tomato and then pork. Sprinkle with mozzarella and then bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until pork is cooked through.
