Roasted Pork Chops Low Sodium Recipe...

We make plenty of pork chop recipes in our house, but this is the first time I've read to put the chops and vegetables in a baking dish to cook together. With summer just around the corner, this would make an easy way to cook when it's too hot outside and you just don't feel like being in front of the stove. We can all eat a little healthier at times, so try low sodium recipes like this one even if you think you're doing enough.

Recipe Ingredients:

β€’ 2 teaspoons parsley flakes

β€’ 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves

β€’ 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

β€’ 4 pork rib chops, 1/2 inch thick (1 pound)

β€’ Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
