        1 garlic clove, minced; 1½ tbsp. olive or vegetable oil

        ½ c. canned tomato sauce

        1 green pepper, cleaned out and cut into thin strips

        ¼ lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced, or 1 3-oz. can mushroom

        Pieces, drained; ¾ tsp. oregano

        ¼ c. tomato juice

        4 oz. hot Italian sausage (optional).

Trim excess fat from pork chops and wash chops under cold water.
