Hi all! I’m Julie from White Lights on Wednesday. I’m excited to be here at This Silly Girl’s Life as a new recipe contributor! This month I’m bringing you a quick and easy weeknight dinner you can make anytime of year. This twist on an Italian classic is made over for a family friend meal that will have everyone asking for seconds.

I just love the paring or lemon with a touch of cream with give the sauce a little body. The bright flavors keep this dish from feeling heavy. And the thin cut pork chops keep cooking time to a minimum. If you buy thicker pork chops or substitute chicken (for the classic dish), your cooking time will increase. But this sauce is where it’s at!
