1) Set the oven temperature to 400°F (205°C) before baking.
2) Follow package instructions to cook penne and drain and set aside.

3) With a paper towel dab the meat to remove the surface moisture.
4) Apply oil evenly over the bottom of a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté chops in it for 2 minutes on each side until browned.
5) Transfer them to a plate when done.
6) Using a paper towel, blot the pan to remove excess fat and then deglaze it with wine and chicken stock, scraping until the entire dark brown residue has been mixed into the liquid.
7) Place the pork back to the liquid (the liquid should come about halfway up the pork chops), and then stir in carrots and mushrooms, trying as much as possible to submerge them in the liquid.
8) Add in thyme, pepper, salt and orange zest and allow the mixture to come to a boil.
9) Bake the mixture, covered in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
10) In the meantime, start steaming the green beans on the stovetop.
11) Take off the pork from oven and remove the green beans from the heat.
12) To a plate, transfer the pork and cover to keep warm.

13) Place the skillet with the liquid and carrots and mushrooms back to the stovetop and allow it to come to a boil, for the sauce.
14) Take it off from heat and then mix in arrowroot slurry made with the de-alcoholized wine splash.
15) Place it again back to heat, stirring until thickened.
16) Mix in pork, green beans and pasta and cook until just heated through.

17) Take 4 dinner plates and divide the pork, pasta and vegetables among them.
18) Top with any sauce remaining in the pan and garnish with a whisper of minced thyme.
