  • Mix together the marinade for the pork and chill. In a small blender or food processor, pulse together the pine nuts and Parmesan. Add in the olive oil 1 tablespoon at a time. Pulse in the herbs, lemon juice, and remaining olive oil until smooth. Chill until ready to use.
  • Preheat the oven to 350*F Bring pork chops to room temp prior to cooking. Heat a grill pan to medium high heat and sear the pork chops about 2 minutes each side. Pop into the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the pork from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Pour on pesto sauce and sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!
