  5. Place ricotta, pesto, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix until well combined.

  6. Grease a 6cm square ovenproof dish. Spread a third of the tomato sauce over the base of the pan. Add the eggplant slices over the top.

  7. Sprinkle the cheese over the eggplant. Layer with another layer of sauce, eggplant, and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layering with eggplant, sauce, and half of the ricotta.

  8. Finish the top layer with sauce and the remaining ricotta. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbling. Serve.
