Coat a pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper. Cook the pork until browned. Remove to a plate.

Add more cooking spray. Add the potatoes, onions, and 1/2 cup water. Cook, scraping up the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the peppers, mushrooms, and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until the vegetables are browned. Add more water if they start of stick. Cook for about 7 minutes.

Stir in the marinara sauce, pork, and 1/4 water. Bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce the heat, and cook until the vegetables are tender and the pork is cooked through (about 7 minutes).
