What You Need

cup  penne pasta, uncooked
 bone-in pork chops (3/4 lb.), 1/2 inch thick
cup  KRAFT Classic Caesar Dressing, divided
cup  KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese, divided
cup  tightly packed baby spinach leaves
cloves  garlic, minced
cup  halved cherry tomatoes

Make It

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 (160ºF). 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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
Prepare using KRAFT Light Ranch Dressing.
