Chop chop, let’s do this! In 10 minutes of cooking time, no less! This hearty family dinner features thinly sliced pork chops, juicy from a quick sear in our bright Bell Pepper & Olive spice mix. Pasta draws in the kids like a magnet, and these twists of gemelli are irresistibly coated in a red-on-red sauce that mixes sun-dried tomatoes, roasted peppers and cream. An insalata of baby greens is calling for that Italian-style vinaigrette.

Boil the pasta
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta; stir gently to separate. Boil, 10 to 12 min., until al dente. Reserving 1 cup cooking water, drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Cook the pork
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spices and S&P. Cook, 3 to 5 min. per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Make the sauce & combine the pasta
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the tomatoes and ½ the roasted peppers, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the cream, reserved cooking water, the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 1 to 2 min., until thickened. Add the pasta and 2 tbsp butter. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until the pasta is coated.
