Herbed Parsley Pork Chops

I tried this one out on my family (the Casdorphs), and I got good reviews from everyone except Jack, who saw me making it. He was a little freaked out by the parsley in the blender, because he doesn't like green stuff. He still ate it without too much complaint, but I'd recommend not letting your pickier eaters see this one until its finished.

3/4 c. Italian dressing
1 cup fresh parsley, packed (I actually used parsley flakes and it worked)
2 garlic cloves
4 pork chops

In blender, puree the dressing, parsley and garlic together. Place pork chops in casserole dish or bowl suitable for marinading. Reserve 1/2 c. sauce for serving*; pour the rest over the chops and spread out evenly. Let stand at least 20 minutes. Cook chops and marinade in pan over medium high heat, 4-5 minutes per side or until done to your liking. Serve with reserved sauce.

*The marinaded chops took on a little more of the garlic flavor while the sauce tasted most like the Italian dressing. My dad and I ate our chops plain. Skye really liked the sauce. Kirk alternated between sauce and plain. It was nice to have options.
