DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Trim the pork tenderloins to remove "silver skin," then slice into 3/4-inch thick rounds.
  • In a hot skillet, brown the tenderloins on both sides in olive oil. Set aside.
  • In a 9 X 13-inch baking pan, arrange the pork slices face up.
  • 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.
  • In a small bowl, combine garlic and tomato sauce. Pour into baking dish, being careful of pork slices. Sauce can cover pork.
  • Top each slice of pork with a thin slice of mozarella cheese.
  • 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.
