Cooking it in a cast iron is just a choice for our household, though we use the cast iron very often. This is the one we own. Once you get the hang of heating it properly, you can get some great sears on your meats. You can choose a large pan that can fit all the pork chops in.

We opted to use a chunky marinara sauce because the chunks of tomatoes pair well with the chunks of zucchini medallions. If you choose a plain marinara sauce, this recipe might come out having too much liquid, but that is up to you. Experiment and play around with your food choices! It will make for an interesting evening.
