Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was excellent. I had a problem with the pork chops, they were extremely tough so I tossed the garlic/oil and the meat into a pressure cooker when it had about 5 minutes left and added the cream and basil and cooked it 7 minutes. It came out perfect. The flavor was wonderful. I will definitely make this again.

I made these last night for my 9 year old daughter and myself. These are absolutely delicious and so easy!!! My daughter is very picky and she ate every single bite. Definitely a keeper.

thought these were really good.
