Step 1

1. Heat oven to broil, and cover a baking sheet with foil.

2. Place four prepared cutlets in a single layer on the baking sheet. Spread about 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce evenly over each cutlet.

3. Sprinkle with roughly 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella and place another eggplant cutlet on top of the cheese.

4. Top this second cutlet with about 1 tablespoon of pesto, and top again with mozzarella.

5. Place a third and final cutlet on top of the cheese, and spread another tablespoon of pasta sauce over top, finishing each stack with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese. (Each stack should be...cutlet, pasta sauce, cheese, cutlet, pesto, cheese, cutlet, pasta sauce, cheese)

6. Place the baking sheet in the oven and broil for about 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

7. Place each stack and garnish with 1 basil leaf if desired.
