Day 6 – Lunch

Grilled Pork and Pasta with Spinach Pesto

Grilled Pork

Servings – 1 4 oz chop

1 pork chop from yesterday*

Total for recipe – $1.01 per serving**
Calories: 137 Fat: 6.4 Protein: 19  

If you have access to an oven/toaster oven:

Preheat to 300.
Heat pork until just warmed through.
Cut into bite sized pieces and put on pasta. Or don’t. Either way.

If you only have access to a microwave:

Heat pasta first.
Meanwhile, cut pork into bite sized pieces.
Place on pasta.
Zap for 20-30 seconds.

* If you didn’t make it, it only takes a few minutes. Click on the recipe and follow through to resting the pork. Can be sauteed instead of grilled.
**As I’ve mentioned, I always find pork on sale. Maybe I’m just lucky that way. Chicken thighs would work fine. Chicken breasts would work fine. Cheese would work fine.
