  • 2 pork chops boneless
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil
  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 1 cup spinach frozen
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup milk whole
  • 1/2 cup pasta water if needed
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon pepper freshly cracked


  • Mix together the flour, garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, and parsley.
  • Boil water for pasta.
  • Thinly slice the pork chops so you have a total of 4 pork chops, or instead of using 2 pork chops you can buy 4 thin sliced pork chops.
  • Coat the pork chops in the flour mixture.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and once hot add in the pork chops. Cook pork chops on both sides until browned, about 6-8 minutes depending on the thickness.
  • Cook the spaghetti and remove. Then cook the spinach in the pasta water, cook pasta until slightly al-dente.
  • Remove the pork chops from the pan and add in the onions, garlic, and a little of the chicken broth to deglaze. (scrape up the cooked bits from pork chops)
  • Mix the butter and flour into the pan to create a roux.
  • Slowly whisk in the remaining chicken broth, milk, parmesan cheese, and then add the pork chops back into the pan.
  • When the pork chops are fully cooked add the spaghetti into the pan with the pork chops and toss in the sauce, add in some pasta water if needed.
