  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 min. or until very hot. Top chops evenly with 2 Tbsp. dressing and 1/4 cup cheese; press cheese into dressing to secure. Add chops, cheese sides down, to skillet; cook 4 min. on each side or until done (145ºF). Transfer to plate; cover to keep warm.
  • Drain pasta; add to skillet with spinach and garlic. Cook and stir 1 min. or just until spinach is wilted. Stir in remaining dressing, cheese and tomatoes; cook and stir 1 min. or until heated through. Serve with chops.

Note from the Kraft Kitchens

Thanks for your feedback. We made a few changes in our prep method to address your issues. We got great results by spreading the Caesar dressing and cheese onto 1 side of the chops only and using a spatula to turn them. We also increased the cook time from 2 minutes per side to 4 minutes.

Substitute

Prepare using KRAFT Lite Ranch Dressing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pasta is divine! The pasta is divine! I tried this recipe with boneless chops with grated Parmesan cheese because that's what I had and then I covered them with bread crumbs and put them in the oven after searing them in a pan with ********'s Spicy Caesar dressing....not bad, but next time I will buy bone in chops, fresh shredded cheese and omit putting them in the oven. The salad is so good! Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from this was a disaster & messy. this was a disaster & messy. pan was too hot. the cheese fell off & burned. i just scraped it off & put it on the pork chops. pasta was only thing that turned out. i think if i ever make this again i will cover the pork chops with dressing & bake it instead & cover with cheese before taking it out of the oven

I did use really hot oil and cooked chops for about 3-4 minutes per side. My family loved both the chops and the pasta. I advise others to keep trying and they will get lucky too.

This was absolutely delicious-----fixed exactly as directed (but had to substitute elbow roni for the Penne pasta). My husband raved about this, as did I, and I intend to make this again and again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The flavors went very well together and the pasta was outstanding. The flavors went very well together and the pasta was outstanding. However, I also had trouble with cheese sticking to the (non)stick pan. Probably will pan-fry the chops and then broil.
