This pork recipe with linguine easily doubles to feed a crowd or to provide leftovers. Try making this family-style dish next time you're craving Italian flavors.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare linguine according to package directions; drain. Toss with butter. Set aside, and keep warm.

Step 2

Place pork between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat mallet.

Step 3

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork in flour mixture, dip in beaten egg, and dredge in breadcrumbs.

Step 4

Sauté pork, in batches, in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Arrange pork in a single layer in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 5

Stir 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil into pasta sauce. Top pork evenly with pasta sauce, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Step 6

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately with hot buttered linguine.

Pork Chop Favorite

This was an excellent recipe! I used very think pork chops so no pounding required. I had leftover pasta sauce. Once you've sauteed your pork chops, its so easy from there. My husband and I loved it! This is one of my top ten favorite recipes.

Everyone in the family enjoyed the food, which is highly unusual. I did not flatten the pork and cut it into pieces. I also sauteed the pork in butter instead of oil.
