Italian pork chops with garlic noodles

Once in awhile you just have to change things up a bit…..regular old spaghetti is great and if you live in Texas chicken spaghetti is pretty darn good too. But one night John wanted something different and he came up with this tasty dish…..here it goes. You need 1 1/2 hours for this dish.  The garlic noodles will be at the bottom.  4 pork chops they do not have to be the thick kind but those will work 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 wholes tomatoes chopped into hunks 1/2 onion chopped 6 cloves of garlic chopped fine 1/2 bell pepper chopped not fine but not in hunks either 1 can tomatoe sauce…..soup can size 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1/2 teaspoon thyme Salt to taste Pepper to taste 4 fresh basil leaves 1/2 cup cream…..optional In a large skillet, large enough to hold everything, heat up on medium to medium high heat and add olive oil, then the pork chops. You want these to brown, if they do not get cooked all the way at this time …
