    ElleFirebrand's Note:

    I first enjoyed this recipe at my mother-in-law's home in Cologne, Germany. Germany has a very large population of Italians and so it is very common to eat Italian-inspired dished there. This one combines pork tenderloin with tomato sauce, fresh tomato slices and melted mozarella cheese. A true knockout. I think this recipe originally came from a German woman's magazine. Though this recipes sounds very complicated, it is quite easy and fun to make. It is also a definite crowd-pleaser.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      Trim the pork tenderloins to remove "silver skin," then slice into 3/4-inch thick rounds.
    3. 3
      In a hot skillet, brown the tenderloins on both sides in olive oil. Set aside.
    4. 4
      In a 9 X 13-inch baking pan, arrange the pork slices face up.
    5. 5
      On top of each slice of pork, top with a small dollop of basil pesto, a slice of tomato and a fresh basil leaf. Repeat until all slices of pork are covered.
    6. 6
      In a small bowl, combine garlic and tomato sauce. Pour into baking dish, being careful of pork slices. Sauce can cover pork.
    7. 7
      Top each slice of pork with a thin slice of mozarella cheese.
    8. 8
      Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown. Cheese may be slid under the broiler for a few minutes for extra browning if desired.

      Great recipe for using leftover pork roast. I served it over a bed of fettuccine with a bit of extra sauce.
