Orange-Sesame Pork Chops with Teriyaki Noodles

The flavors of this dish are absolutely amazing!  The cooking time is quick (about 20 minutes), but you will be spread in between 3 different skillets/pots.  That little craziness is so worth it though!  You'll enjoy every bite of this.  Enjoy! 
Ingredients:
For pasta:
-1 lb spaghetti
-3 Tbs vegetable oil
-6 green onion, thinly sliced
-1 cup frozen peas
-1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
-1 Tbs toasted sesame seeds
For pork:
-4 boneless, butterflied pork chops
-2 Tbs vegetable oil
-salt and pepper
-3 Tbs orange marmalade
-2 Tbs teriyaki sauce
-1/4 cup water
-1 tsp sesame oil
Directions:
Place spaghetti in boiling water.  Cook for about 10 minutes, or until pasta is cooked to desired consistency.
Meanwhile, heat the 2 Tbs oil in large skillet.  Season pork chops with salt and pepper.  Cook in hot oil until done.  Remove from skillet onto plate lined with paper towels.  Cover with foil to keep warm.
To that same skillet add the marmalade, 2 Tbs teriyaki and the water.  Bring the sauce to a boil and cook for another minute.  Stir in sesame oil and remove from heat.
In the last 2 minutes of the cooking time for the pasta, heat the 3 Tbs oil in another skillet.  Add green onions and peas.  Cook for a couple of minutes.  Drain pasta and add pea mixture and 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce.  Toss well and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Place a nice portion of noodles onto plate.  Add a chop next to it.  Top chop with orange glaze.  Enjoy!
