Pork Tenderloin and Spinach with Parmesan
- Combine salad dressing, Italian seasoning, 2 teaspoons of the lemon juice and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Combine liquid mixture and pork in a resealable plastic bag, turning to coat. [Refrigerate overnight if time allows]
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray cooking sheet with cooking spray and place pork in the center. Pour any marinade remaining in the bag on top.
- Bake for 30 minutes until desired doneness. Let stand 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute before slicing.
- Spray saucepan with cooking spray. Sautee onions on medium-high heat 3 minutes. Add spinach to onions and cook according to package directions. Drain well ? wring off as much water as possible.
- Add lemon juice and garlic, stir. Sprinkle parmesan and pine nuts (optional) over spinach and lightly toss.
TIP: When cooking tenderloins often one end is smaller than the other, by tucking the smaller end under so both ends are approximately the same thickness it will cook more evenly. However, if some members of your household prefer well-done and other’s enjoy rarer meats having a thinner end can give you more variety.
