  • 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 I thought this was great but our family of five was only in favor by 3-2. I thought this was great but our family of five was only in favor by 3-2. Those who didn't like it thought it was too salty - I did NOT add any salt. I had no trouble with the cheese falling off. I used a bit more dressing than was called for and I let the chops sit for about 5 minutes after I coated them with cheese. I cooked them for 6 minutes on a George Foreman grill that I sprayed with cooking spray. I was careful as I removed them from the grill and cheese stayed on. I thought everything was yummy and I'll make these again when it's just the three of us

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First off the cheese burnt while waiting for the chops to cook. First off the cheese burnt while waiting for the chops to cook. 2 minutes on each side is not enough and the pan was way too hot! But at least with the cheese burnt it stayed on when turned. On the second side, when I turned down heat the cheese all came off when I turned. So I scrapped of the burnt stuff on the 1st side & brushed more dressing on and sprinkled on more cheese to both sides and kinda saved dinner. Flavor was good but looked nothing like the picture and was a nightmare to cook. Pasta dish was good.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this recipe was very good. I thought this recipe was very good. It does take longer than 2 min. on each side to cook the meat and the cheese comes off when turning but it was very good. The meat had nice flavor and the pasta was excellent. I did add a little extra dressing to the pasta because I like it creamier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment! What a disappointment! First 2 min each side was not long enough to cook completely. Second the cheese did not stick to the chops. Third the cheese was burnt before the chops were cooked. I will not make this again and very upset that I wasted expensive ingredients on this receipe.

I used my own grated parm and boneless chops - took a little longer to cook than the recipe called for, and definitely didn't look like the picture, but the pork was very tender and delicious and the pasta and spinach was a perfect side that was easy to make while the pork was cooking.
