Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450° F.
  • Mix Italian seasoning with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Use this mixture to season pork. Set aside.
  • Julienne the zucchini and squash, or slice into 1/8-inch thick slices and then cut again into strips. Set aside.
  • Slice tomatoes in half and toss with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, oregano, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and remaining pepper.
  • Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and add the tomatoes. Bake for 10 minutes.

  • Spray the same skillet with cooking spray and cook pork chops approximately 2 minutes per side or until cooked through and no longer pink. (Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the meat.)
  • Remove vegetables from oven and toss with olives, juice from the lemon and about 1/2 teaspoon lime zest. Top with feta.
