  • Heat broiler. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season pork with salt and pepper, arrange on sheet, and broil 3 minutes. Remove sheet from broiler. Flip pork; top with tomato sauce and mozzarella. Broil until pork is cooked through, 3 minutes. Cover and refrigerate 3 cutlets for Zesty Pork Sandwiches.

  • Stir remaining 1/4 cup oil, lemon zest and juice, and arugula into remaining orzo and season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside pork.

Cook's Notes
