Grilled Pork Chops with Spaghetti Squash, Zucchini and White, oh, my! Not only is this delicious but it's healthy! If you've never cooked spaghetti squash, I encourage you to try it :)

Grilled Pork Chops with Spaghetti Squash,  Zucchini and White Beans
For the pork chops:
4 boneless center-cut pork chops
1 tablespoon Olive oil
Worcestershire sauce
Cavender’s Greek seasoning
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with all of the seasonings and drizzle olive oil on each side.  Grill on high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until done.  Place on a platter, cover with foil and let them rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
For the Sauce:
1 large spaghetti squash, pierced and cooked on a cookie sheet at 375 for 1 hour/then let cool
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium zucchini, washed and diced
½ cup onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
Crumbled feta cheese
Heat the olive oil in a skillet and sauté the zucchini and onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes then add the garlic and sauté for 1 more minute.  Reduce the heat and add the next 5 ingredients.  Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes.  Cut the cooled squash lengthwise and remove the seeds.  Take a fork and scrape out all the insides…it looks just like spaghetti!  In a large bowl toss the zucchini mixture with the cooked spaghetti squash then top with feta cheese and serve with grilled pork chops.
