This recipe is great. My family loves it. The best part is the pork ragu recipe for the leftovers! I always buy extra pork chops to make sure I have enough for the ragu dish. My 17 year old son, who is a little picky and a big eater, loves the pork chops, and I always get a compliment. The only problem is remembering to buy fennel when I am at the grocery store without a list!

I made this meal tonight for supper and it was delicious. I couldn't get enough and my husband kept saying what a great meal. It was very easy to prepare and well worth the effort. Thanks and keep them coming...
