  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a nonstick baking sheet. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Stem and mince parsley. Halve Roma tomatoes lengthwise. Stem and mince oregano. Stem and mince half the basil and thinly slice the other half for garnish. Mince garlic. Trim green beans. Rinse pork chops and pat dry.

  2. 2

    Roast Tomatoes

    Place tomato halves on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle halves with 1 tsp. of olive oil, then evenly distribute shredded mozzarella on the halves. Place ⅓ of the oregano and ⅓ of the minced basil on top of the cheese. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until cheese starts to brown.

  3. 3

    Cook Pork Chops

    Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium heat, and lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray. Season pork chops on both sides with 1 tsp. of olive oil, remaining minced basil (leaving strips for garnish), remaining oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook pork chops on grill for 4-6 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches a minimum of 165 degrees.

  4. 4

    Saute the Green Beans

    In a medium pan over medium heat, place 2 Tbsp. water and green beans and cover with a lid. Let steam for about 3-4 minutes, remove lid, and drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil. Cook for about one minute and add the minced garlic. Cook for 30 seconds and add the balsamic vinegar. Cook for an additional minute, season with a pinch of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste.

    Plate the Dish
