Melt in your mouth, juicy pork chops; that is what my wife had to say about this Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops Recipe. I usually make spaghetti sauce from scratch, but when I saw this recipe called for store bought spaghetti seasoning mix I decided to give it a try. I purchased the store brand because there was a lot of difference in the price and it was excellent. There is a little bit of prep time that goes along with this recipe which is mainly the time involved, browning the pork chops, and then cooking the spaghetti in the end before you serve dinner. Other than that you can set it and forget it for most of the day.
I prepared this recipe as written and my wife and I thought this was an excellent dish. If you like using your slow cooker, give this Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops Recipe a try. Enjoy
