I’ve partnered with the Smithfield All-Natural Pork Products Campaign and Weave Made Media to create this delicious Italian Crusted Pork with Creamy Parmesan Orzo. The kids are back in school which means weeknight dinners need to be simple and tasty! This recipe takes less than 30 minutes and your whole family will enjoy! #weavemade #SmithfieldAllNatural http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH”
With my son starting kindergarten and all the rushing around we have been doing, I have been struggling to get into the new routine with my family. In my frenzy, the decision of what to make for dinner often gets put to the back of the line until the last minute. Eating dinner as a family is definitely a priority but I needed to develop some new weeknight meals. I needed meals that would be fast, simple, and satisfy everyone in our family. With tastes running in opposite directions, I also definitely needed to enlist some help. Thank goodness hubby knows his way around the kitchen. He is like a well oiled machine of task management while I am a messy magician!
I still feel so new in town and every home cook knows the importance of finding a good grocery store. I visited my local Safeway where I found Smithfield All-Natural Pork Tenderloin and some pork sausage.
Using fresh, natural ingredients is very important to me. I like knowing what I am eating and I love cooking from scratch. However, I also need dinners with little fuss. The simple potent ingredients of this dish perfectly complement the pork. Score! Panko breading seasoned with basil and oregano perfectly suited the pan-fried pork. Italian is comfort food at it’s finest! But it needed something more so I added creamy Parmesan orzo with a small spinach salad. A drizzle of balsamic glaze over the whole dish finished it off. Honestly, my hubby and son just mixed everything together with a spoon and chowed down. Next time, I am going to prepare this as a one dish meal.
