While the pork chops are in the oven you can work on the pasta.
After pasta has been boiled, drain and put into a large bowl.
Add the lemon juice to pasta making sure to coat all of it. Next add tomatoes, basil, garlic, onions, and a about 1tbs of olive oil. Give the pasta a nice mix and you’re done.
Once pork chops are done place them to the side.
