Original recipe makes 6



Cut pork into slices 1/4-inch thick. Place pork in plastic bag; add dressing, turning to coat. Tie bag securely and marinate at least 15 minutes (no longer than 1 1/2 hours). Remove pork from marinade. Brown pork in oil in nonstick skillet; pour off drippings. Add tomatoes and spinach. Cover tightly and cook over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Pour off liquid. Meanwhile remove soft centers from bread to form "boats". Spoon 1 cup pork mixture into each boat. Sprinkle each with equal amount of cheese.

The flavors were a bit mild for my taste, but it was a great mid-week dish to make. Quick and easy!
