How to Make It
Steam the squash in 1 inch of water until tender, 12 to 15 minutes; drain and return it to the pot. Add the butter and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and mash to the desired consistency.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork with the coriander, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the thickest chop registers 145° F, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
Serve the mashed squash topped with the pork chops and drizzled with pesto.
