cheese of your choice, I used Farmers cheese
handful of basil
tomato Sauce, I use Mids tomato basil sauce
toasted pine nuts
1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the eggplant into 1/2 inch slices and place on a baking sheet in one layer. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tender. It will go in the oven again at the end so it doesn't have to be cooked all the way through.
2 Spoon some sauce to cover the bottom of a baking dish. Next, arrange half the eggplant slices in one layer. Then some sauce, then some cheese, then basil. Repeat until all eggplant slices are used up.
3 Bake all together again in a 400 degree oven until cheese is soft and cooked down. Garnish with more basil and toasted pine nuts.
